GatR DNA-binding transcriptional repressor

Synonyms: GatR
"Galactitol regulator," GatR, negatively controls the expression of an operon involved in transport and catabolism of hexitol galactitol [1, 2]. The gatYZABCD operon is expressed constitutively due to an insertion of IS3E into the gatR gene [1]. Currently, no DNA-binding sites for this regulator have been reported in the literature. As a member of the DeoR family, GatR features an N-terminal domain containing a putative helix-turn-helix motif [1, 3].
