RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.9: Operon Form

folD-ybcJ operon and associated TUs in Escherichia coli K-12 genome

Transcription unit       
Name: folD-ybcJ
Gene(s): ybcJ, folD   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): Putative promoter islands, which are regions of DNA containing multiple transcription start sites, were found by computational prediction methods in the intergenic region of the folD and sfmA genes in E. coli. These promoter islands are associated with genes acquired horizontally, and they are absent in the same region in Salmonella 23717391 In addition, some sites that bind HNS have been predicted in this intergenic region. This protein appears to inactivate the promoter islands 23717391
The transcription of the ybcJ gene is induced during the first 24 h after the induction of nitrogen starvation 32571968.
