RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.6.3: Operon Form
   

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




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


Transcription unit          
Name: uxuAB
Gene(s): uxuA, uxuB   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Evidence: [IEP] Inferred from expression pattern
[ITCR] Inferred through co-regulation
Reference(s): [1] Blanco C., et al., 1986
Promoter
Name: uxuAp
+1: 4551518
Sigma Factor: Sigma70 Sigmulon
Distance from start of the gene: 118
Sequence: tgtggttaaccaatttcagaattcgggttgacatgtcttaccaaaaggtagaacttatacGccatctcatccgatgcaacg
                            -35                  -10        +1                   
Note(s): The Pribnow box of the uxuA promoter shows poor homology with the consensus sequence but contains the two most conserved nucleotides: the A in the second position and the T in the last position. The spacer length between this sequence and the -35 region is 17 nucleotides, the optimal distance for promoter efficiency.
