gdhA operon and associated TUs in Escherichia coli K-12 genome




Operon      
Name: gdhA
This page displays every known transcription unit of this operon and their known regulation.


Transcription unit          
Name: gdhA
Gene(s): gdhA   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): Under nitrogen-limiting growth conditions, the transcription of the gdhA gene is repressed by the Nac protein Camarena L,1998.
Under nitrogen-rich growth conditions, the expression of the gdhA gene was decreased in mutants for two genes that encode two terminal oxidases, cyoA and cydB, and in mutants for two transcriptional regulators, Fnr and Fur. However, under nitrogen-limited growth conditions, the gene expression was increased in the Fur mutant Kumar R,2011

Note(s): 1A putative CRP-bindig site was identified at bp -32.5 upstream of gdhAp. The regulatory effect of this possible interaction of CRP with the site is not known. However, we assigned a negative effect to this regulatory interaction based on the fact that the position of the site is not optimal for activation of transcription by CRP. This site is located between the -10 and -35 boxes of the promoter Riba L,1988.4A putative CRP-bindig site was identified at bp -32.5 upstream of gdhAp.
