RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.7: Operon Form

rybA-mntS operon and associated TUs in Escherichia coli K-12 genome

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

Transcription unit          
Name: rybA-mntS
Gene(s): rybA, mntS   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): RybA is a bifunctional RNA that acts as both an sRNA and an mRNA for MntS |CITS:[22336764][21908668]|. Therefore, rybA and mntS overlap. Based on 5??- and 3??-RACE analysis, RybA is rapidly processed at the 5?? end as well as at multiple sites at the 3?? end. The predominant form under peroxide stress conditions is 207 nt long (positions 852270 to 852064) |CITS:[22336764]|.

Note(s): Based on 5??-RACE experiments, an additional 5?? end located 17 bp downstream of the transcription start site (position 852270) has been identified Waters LS,2011 Based on a deletion analysis and mutational analysis of the promoter, as well as gene expression analysis, in which the rybA transcript was expressed under the control of a constitutive lac promoter, it was proposed that this 5?? end is generated by RNA processing Gerstle K,2012 The RNase responsible for the processing is not known.
