RegulonDB RegulonDB 11.1: Operon Form

mprA-emrAB operon and associated TUs in Escherichia coli K-12 genome

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

Transcription unit          
Name: emrRAB
Gene(s): mprA, emrA, emrB   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): Hirakawa et al. demonstrated that OmpR increases mRNA expression of the emrA gene by 6.5 times, providing possible evidence that OmpR regulates the expression of its encoding operon, emrRAB Hirakawa H,2003
The expression of the emrB gene, and probably the expression of the whole emrRAB operon, is affected by antibiotic pressure. An increase in emrB expression is maintained during exposition to increasing concentrations of tetracycline Viveiros M, Dupont M, Rodrigues L, Couto I, Davin-Regli A, Martins M, Pagès JM, Amaral L,2007
