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




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


Transcription unit          
Name: rcnAB
Gene(s): rcnA, rcnB   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
Evidence: [ICWHO] Inferred computationally without human oversight

Note(s): 1Bound RcnR (RcnR transcriptional repressor) represses transcription Iwig JS,2006. Koch D,2007. Iwig JS,2009 RcnR interacts nonspecifically with the approximately 50 bp flanking the core binding site, resulting in DNA wrapping and the introduction of a single negative supercoil into plasmid DNA Iwig JS,2009
