Transcription unit          
Name: rcnR
Gene(s): rcnR   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): In response to increasing concentrations of nickel or cobalt, RcnR releases the repression of rcnA and rcnR to allow its expression Iwig JS,2006. Iwig JS,2009 It has been recently determined that the expression levels of the rcnA and rcnR genes are directly induced by Ni and Co via the metallo-regulator RcnR, and both genes are differentially expressed Blaha D,2011 In addition, in 2007 Koch et al. showed that the expression of this gene was affected positively by iron; it is uncertain whether this gene is activated by FUR Koch D,2007
