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




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


Transcription unit          
Name: ascFB
Gene(s): ascF, ascB   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): ascFB is a cryptic operon that is transcribed divergently from ascG. This cryptic operon is activated by the insertion of IS186 into the ascG (repressor) gene (but that activation is readily reversible by precise excision of IS186). Hall and Xu (1992) reported the complete nucleotide sequence of the asc operon and the mechanism by which the cryptic operon is activated. They also mentioned that ascFB is paralogous (homologous via a gene duplication) to bglFB, and ascG is paralogous to galR |CITS:[1630307]|.
Modifications (duplications of 10 nt) in the intergenic regions between ascF and ascB modulate transcription of ascB and the growth rate on cellobiose minimal medium |CITS:[26121029][10829079]|.

Sequence similarities suggest that the asc operon is probably a duplication of the bgl operon |CITS:[1630307]|.
