Transcription unit          
Name: yhjX
Gene(s): yhjX   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): Expression levels of cspI, ypjB, and yhjX genes were repressed by overproduction of YehT Kraxenberger T,2012 Insomuch as all of these genes lack any LytTR-like sequence motif, it is probable that the effect of YehT on these genes is indirect Kraxenberger T,2012
A functional link between the two systems provides positive feedback between YpdA/YhjX and yjiY transcription, while yhjX is negatively regulated by BtsS/YjiY activity Behr S,2014. 28796832
Based on genomic SELEX (gSELEX) screening it was demonstrated that in the presence of a high concentration of pyruvate, PyrSR regulates at least eight novel targets, including the yhjX gene, which encodes a protein with as-yet-unidentified function Miyake Y,2019
The yhjX gene is more highly expressed during exponential growth than stationary phase and it is the major target of PyrR Miyake Y,2019
