nhaS gene that express NhaS, a putative sodium ion binding protein.
"NhaS is proposed to be a sodium binding protein that can enhance the Na+ -resistance of antiporter- deficient strains by increasing the availability of Na+ to the integral membrane antiporters on the cytoplasmic side of the membrane and by sequestering Na+ while rate-limiting efflux mechanisms catalyze extrusion of the cation." (Krulwich et al. 1994)
"The NhaS protein enhances resistance of bacteria into which the nhaS gene has been introduced, to Na+ by sequestering Na+ and reducing its cytotoxicity." (Krulwich et al. 1994)
NhaS is a protein that binds to sodium ions and enhance the bacteria's resistance up to 15% to high saline conditions.
