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




Operon

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


Transcription unit          
Name: leuQPV
Synonym(s): leuQ
Gene(s): leuV, leuP, leuQ   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): It is very probable that both valVW and leuQPV operons terminate in a Rho-dependent fashion, since the downstream sequences do not contain any recognizable Rho-independent transcription terminator structures Mohanty BK,2007.
A potential RNA G-quadruplex structure, formed by guanine-rich sequences located in the coding sequence region of the gene, was identified for leuP . This structure could regulate the expression of the gene, as observed for hemL gene expression 31964733.
Evidence: [BTEI] Boundaries of transcription experimentally identified
[LTED] Length of transcript experimentally determined

Note(s): Based on results of nuclease protection and primer extension assays, leuV, argT, metT, and leuX were determined to be involved in the stringent response induced by serine hydroxamate Rowley KB,1993.
