DsdC DNA-binding transcriptional dual regulator

Synonyms: DsdC, DsdC-D-serine
Summary:
In the presence of d-serine, the D-serine deaminase protein, DsdC, activates the transcription of genes involved in d-serine detoxification, and in the absence of the metabolite it is autorepressed |CITS: [6296057]|.
DsbC belongs to the LysR family of bacterial transcriptional regulators and contains a possible helix-turn-helix motif for DNA binding in the C-terminal domain. This protein shows 50% similarity to the GcvA protein |CITS:[7592420] [3275618]|.
The dsbC gene is located next to an operon ( dsdXA ) regulated by DsbC, but facing in the opposite direction. The activation effect of DsdC on this operon is enhanced by CRP, but CRP cannot act alone on the operon |CITS:[7592420]|.
A DNA-binding site recognized by the dimer of DsbC has not been identified.
