A transposon insertion 16 bp before yiiF confers thymol resistance, probably by interfering with yiiF expression (Shapira, 2007). yiiE and yiiF are adjacent and homologous. The N-terminal domain of YiiF belongs to the RHH-1 family (PF01402) of CopB-like predicted transcriptional repressors which is part of the RHH superfamily (IPR010985) of ribbon-helix-helix proteins.
