Note(s): ftsKp1 (dinH) is the main ftsK promoter during the cellular division process. Dorazi R,2000
Although a primer extension experiment has been done for this operon, the results indicated a region
(2-4 nucleotides) rather than a specific start site Dorazi R,2000 We have decided to place the transcription +1 site in the nucleotide closest to the -10 box.
