RegulonDB RegulonDB 11.1: Operon Form

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

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

Transcription unit       
Name: ldcC
Gene(s): ldcC   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): RpoS-dependent expression at stationary phase has been described Kikuchi Y,1998. In addition to RpoS, it appears that ldcC expression is also induced by another sigma factors, because in the presence of antibiotic and the absence of RpoS, ldcC expression is induced Akhova A,.
Fluoroquinolones and -lactams increased ldcC expression, while an aminoglycoside (amikacin) decreased such expression Akhova A,.
Evidence: [EXP-IDA-BOUNDARIES-DEFINED] Boundaries of transcription experimentally identified
[EXP-IDA-TRANSCRIPT-LEN-DETERMINATION] Length of transcript experimentally determined
Reference(s): [1] Kikuchi Y., et al., 1998
[2] Lemonnier M., et al., 1998
[3] Yamamoto Y., et al., 1997
Name: ldcCp
+1: Unknown
Sigma Factor: Sigma38 Sigmulon
Note(s): The ldcC -35 and -10 promoter sequences have been described in Yamamoto Y,1997 and Kikuchi Y,1998 as being close to the translational start site, even though the +1 for transcription has not been determined. In addition to the experimental evidence, the -10 sequence (TATGAT) in the ldcC promoter is specific for RpoS (σ38) Kikuchi Y,1998.
