RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.8: Operon Form

wcaCDEF-gmd-fcl-gmm-wcaI-cpsBG-wcaJ-wzxC operon and associated TUs in Escherichia coli K-12 genome

Name: wcaCDEF-gmd-fcl-gmm-wcaI-cpsBG-wcaJ-wzxC
This page displays every known transcription unit of this operon and their known regulation.

Transcription unit       
Name: wcaCDEF-gmd-fcl-gmm-wcaI-cpsBG-wcaJ-wzxC
Synonym(s): wcaCDEF-gmd-fcI-nudD-wcaI-cpsBG-wcaJ-wzxC
Gene(s): wzxC, wcaJ, cpsG, cpsB, wcaI, gmm, fcl, gmd, wcaF, wcaE, wcaD, wcaC   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): The transcription of the genes cpsB and cpsG is enhanced in the absence of cardiolipin , an anionic phospholipid that appears to participate in signaling for biofilm formation Nepper JF,2019. The other genes of the operon were not included in the expression analysis when cardiolipin was not present.
Evidence: [ICWHO] Inferred computationally without human oversight
