In this paper, we describe the identification of an iron-acquisition gene homologue, ferrous iron transporter (feoB) in C. burnetii. The results of a genomic screen for putative Fur-regulated genes and Fur boxes and the development of a two-plasmid system to analyze these Fur boxes will also be illustrated.
