RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.8: Operon Form

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

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

Transcription unit       
Name: mutS
Gene(s): mutS   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): Transcription of the mutS gene might be negatively regulated by σ38 through an intermediate regulator, as was shown in Tsui HC,1997 On other hand Hfq negatively regulates mutS expression, destabilizing its transcription during exponential growth.
