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


Transcription unit          
Name: ogt
Gene(s): ogt   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): Derrick et al. (2009) suggested that induction of ogt by NarL alone in response to external nitrate provides a prophylactic effect against possible genotoxicity arising from nitrate metabolism Squire DJ,2009 NarL activates the ogt promoter independently of FNR Squire DJ,2009 NarL (E273 residue) appears to interact directly with RNA polymerase (α-CTD) to activate transcription of the ogt promoter Ruanto P,2020.
The ogt promoter is induced by NarL in response to nitrate ions, without help from FNR Squire DJ,2009
Based on experiments utilizing a mutant background, it was shown that NarP plays little or no role in the ogt promoter region Squire DJ,2009

Note(s): Although a putative σ54-binding site was identified upstream of the abgB gene and the gene expression was affected in microarray experiments in a mutant
σ54 strain and a σ54-overexpressing strain, ChIP assays demonstrated that σ54 does not bind upstream of abgB Zhao K,2010 Therefore, we did not assign a σ54 promoter to this gene.
Evidence: [ICWHO] Inferred computationally without human oversight
