The main characteristics of DR_2327and DR_2328 in Deinococcus radiodurans were analyzeed by bioinformatics. Full-length gene of DR_2327 and DR_2328 was amplified by PCR, and constructed in pGEM-T vector. Transformed recombinant vector into E.coli JM109 and followed by restriction enzyme digestion. DR_2327 and DR_2328 gene was cloned successfully. Bioinformatic analysis results showed that DR_2327 and DR_2328 gene located in the same operon, and DR_2328 protein with histidine kinase activity, DR_2327 protein with response regulator activity. It is suggested that DR_2327 and DR_2328 constitute a two-component system in Deinococcus radiodurans. In vitro experiments showed that DR_2327 and DR_2328 could enhance tolerance to UV radiation and H2O2 of E.coli.

Key words: Deinococcus radiodurans, DR_2327, DR_2328, Gene cloning, Bioinformatics analysis
