A monocistronic small protein, BpOF4_01690, was annotated in alkaliphilic Bacillus pseudofirmus OF4. It comprises 59 amino acids and is hydrophobic. Importantly, homologs of this protein were identified only in alkaliphiles. In this study, a mutant with a BpOF4_01690 gene deletion (designated Δ01690) exhibited weaker growth than that of the wild type in both malate-based defined and glucose-based defined media under low-sodium conditions at pH 10.5. Additionally, the enzymatic activity of the respiratory chain of Δ01690 was much lower than that of the wild type. These phenotypes were similar to those of a ctaD deletion mutant and an atpB-F deletion mutant. Therefore, we hypothesize that BpOF4_01690 plays a critical role in oxidative phosphorylation under highly alkaline conditions.
