75% of the in vivo transcripts end at a terminator inside the cynX gene; although CynT and CynX wer readily detectble in mincells, CynX was barely detectable (Sung, 1988). Major Facilitator Superfamily (MFS). A cynX mutant does not appear to be defective in cyanate sensitivity or utilization (Guilloton, 1993).
