RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.8: Operon Form

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

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

Transcription unit       
Gene(s): sfmA   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): Putative promoter islands, which are regions of DNA containing multiple transcription start sites, were found by computational prediction methods in the intergenic region of the folD and sfmA genes in E. coli. These promoter islands are associated with genes acquired horizontally, and they are absent in the same region in Salmonella 23717391 In addition, some sites that bind HNS have been predicted in this intergenic region. This protein appears to inactivate the promoter islands 23717391
