DecR DNA-binding transcriptional dual regulator

Synonyms: DecR
DecR is a regulator with an important role in cysteine detoxification. The absence of decR increases the inhibitory effect on bacterial growth caused by cysteine [1].
The presence of cysteine improves the interaction between DecR and the promoter region of the operon yhaOM, thereby causing activation [1].
DecR (YbaO) may have a role in Rob-mediated regulation [2]. In a Salmonella enterica cutR mutant, E. coli ybaO restored cysteine-responsive regulation of the CdsH cysteine desulfhydrase [3].
decR is a member of the Rob regulon [2].
DecR: detoxification of cysteine regulator [1].
CutR: cysteine utilization regulator (in Salmonella enterica) [3] Read more >
