RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.10: Operon Form

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

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

Transcription unit          
Name: pitA
Gene(s): pitA   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): pitA expression is not constitutive and it is positively regulated by the availability of Pi and of Zn(II) Jackson RJ,2008 Jackson et al. (2009) suggested a model in which Zn(II), as well as other divalent cations such as Mg(II) and Ca(II), are cotransported with phosphate by PitA Jackson RJ,2008
