RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.9: Operon Form
   

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




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


Transcription unit          
Name: nupC
Synonym(s): OP00198
Gene(s): nupC   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): The nupC gene is regulated by Nac, CRP, and CytR. Two CRP-binding sites have been identified at -40.5 and -89.5 bp upstream of the transcriptional start site. Since no CytR-binding site has been identifed, it was suggested that the CytR protein could bind to a region between the two sites of CRP, such as in the regulatory regions of the deo and cdd operons Craig JE,1994.

Promoter
Name: nupCp
+1: 2513009
Sigma Factor: Sigma70 Sigmulon

Note(s): The -10 and -35 regions of the nupCp promoter have been identified with the sequences TAGAAT and TCTCGT, respectively. There is a CRP-binding site overlapping the -35 region Craig JE,1994.
