RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.8: Operon Form
   

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




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


Transcription unit          
Name: metNIQ
Synonym(s): abc
Gene(s): metQ, metI, metN   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): A potential RNA G-quadruplex structure, formed by guanine-rich sequences located in the coding sequence region of the gene, was identified for metQ . This structure could regulate the expression of the gene, as observed for hemL gene expression 31964733.
Evidence: [IEP] Inferred from expression pattern
[ITC] Inferred through co-regulation
