Name: FucR
Description: Molecular biology level
Detailed: In the presence of L-fuculose-1-phosphate, FucR positively regulates the expression of genes required for fucose transport and catabolic processes. Under these condition, FucR is modified to FucR-L-fuculose-1-phosphate, binds its target sites enabling the expression of its regulated genes. In the absence of L-fuculose-1-phosphate, FucR unbinds its target sites preventing the expression of its regulated genes.
Less detailed: In the presence of L-fuculose-1-phosphate, FucR positively regulates the expression of genes needed for fucose transport and catabolic processes.

Physiology level
Detailed: The presence of L-fuculose-1-phosphate induces the expression of genes involved with fucose transport and catabolism. Under this conditions, the genes necessary for fucose transport and degradation to L-lactaldehyde and glycerone phosphate (that feeds glycolysis), are expressed.
Less detailed: The presence of L-fuculose-1-phosphate induces the expression of genes needful for transport of fucose and its degradation to L-lactaldehyde and glycerone phosphate.
