RegulonDB RegulonDB 11.0: Operon Form

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

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

Transcription unit          
Name: tynA
Gene(s): tynA   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): The expression of tynA is activated in carbon- and nitrogen-limited cells in the presence of a FeaR coactivator Zeng J,2013.
During carbon limitation in the presence of the FeaR coactivators (glycerol medium plus tyramine/PEA), both tynA and feaB are upregulated Zeng J,2013. On the other hand, it has been observed that aldehydes derived from some amines (PEA, Tyra, DA, Trypta), instead of the amines themselves, activate tynA expression in a FeaR- dependent way Rottinghaus AG, Xi C, Amrofell MB, Yi H, Moon TS,2022
tynA, feaB, and fliA promoters are strongly repressed when the nsrR start codon from the wild-type GUG is changed to AUG Chhabra S,2015
Based on ChIP-chip and consensus sequences (Virtual Footprint), a site of NsrR negatively controlling the tynA gene has been identified Partridge JD,2009 However, this site is far from the tynA promoter, at -138666 bp from the TSS.
