RegulonDB RegulonDB 11.1: Operon Form

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

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

Transcription unit       
Name: frsA
Gene(s): frsA   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): The -35 region of the frsA gene overlaps with the gpt terminator. Here, RNA polymerase could be controlling the positive or negative effect on frsA gene transcription Nuesch J,1984.
Evidence: [COMP-AINF] Inferred computationally without human oversight
[EXP-IDA-TRANSCRIPT-LEN-DETERMINATION] Length of transcript experimentally determined
Reference(s): [1] Nuesch J., et al., 1984
Name: frsAp
+1: 256502
Sigma Factor: Sigma70 Sigmulon
Distance from start of the gene: 25

Note(s): We assigned a putative transcriptional start site to this promoter based on the observation that the majority of the promoters, whose transcriptional start sites were determined experimentally, present a distance of 6 nucleotides between the transcriptional start site and the -10 box Harley CB, Reynolds RP,1987.
