RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.8: Operon Form

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

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

Transcription unit          
Name: grxA
Gene(s): grxA   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): The transcription of the gene grxA is enhanced under high oxygen saturation (300%) in the absence of the superoxide dismutase proteins SodA and SodB Baez A,2013
Sulfane sulfur modifies OxyR at Cys199 to form a protein persulfide that in turn activates the expression of grxA, trxC, and katG promoters under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions 31421411
The transcript of grxA is increased after σE induction, as observed in high-throughput analysis of gene expression Lacoux C,2020.

Note(s): This promoter appears to be induced in two phases after σE induction. It is induced during the first 5 minutes following σE induction, decreased from 5 to 10 minutes, induced from 10 to 15 minutes, and decreased from 15 to 20 minutes Lacoux C,2020.
