Transcription unit          
Name: sgrR-sroA-thiBPQ
Gene(s): thiQ, thiP, thiB, sroA, sgrR   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): SgrR, which has a putative DNA-binding domain (at the amino region) and a solute-binding domain (at the carboxy region), can simultaneously regulate both sgrS activation and its autoregulation Vanderpool CK,2007 under glucose phosphate accumulation (phosphosugar stress). This SgrS synthesis causes the degradation of ptsG mRNA Vanderpool CK,2004
Evidence: [COMP-AINF] Inferred computationally without human oversight
