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




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


Transcription unit          
Name: osmE
Gene(s): osmE   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Evidence: [BTEI] Boundaries of transcription experimentally identified
Reference(s): [1] Gutierrez C., et al., 1995
Promoter
Name: osmEp
+1: 1822283
Sigma Factor: Sigma70, Sigma38
Distance from start of the gene: 27

Note(s): osmEp is recognized by both Eσ70 and EσS. Eσ70 is responsible for osmotic induction of osmEp during the exponential growth phase, while EσS controls its expression during entry into the stationary phase Bordes P,2002.

Note(s): 3The transcriptional regulator Fis modulates the osmE gene expression under certain environmental conditions at a particular growth stage by reducing its transcription. Fis can bind to three sites in the transcriptional region of osmEp, but the site centered at -86 with respect to the +1 of the transcription initiation site is of major importance for efficient binding Bordes P,2002.
