RegulonDB RegulonDB 11.1: Operon Form

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

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

Transcription unit          
Name: asnA
Synonym(s): OP00152
Gene(s): asnA   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): Under nitrogen-limiting growth conditions, the transcription of the asnA gene is reduced as a consequence of the absence of AsnC, a protein that activates asnA transcription Poggio S,2002.
The transcription activation of asnA by the AsnC protein is turned off by
asparagine Kolling R,1985.
In contrast to the effect of asparagine on the regulation of asnA by
AsnC, this amino acid does not affect the autoregulation of AsnC r>[2864330]|.
