Alx is predicted to be a membrane-bound redox modulator (Stancik, 2002). alx is preceded by an alkali-induced riboswitch that was previously annotated as a stand-alone sRNA gene known as psrN (psrA14, sraF, tpk1) (Nechooshtan, 2009). The putative psrN sRNA gene (EG31161) has been removed as a stand-alone gene and is now annotated as the alx 5' UTR.
