RegulonDB RegulonDB 10.10: Operon Form
   

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

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


Transcription unit          
Name: chiZPQ
Synonym(s): chiP-chiQ, chiP-ybfN, ybfMN
Gene(s): chiZ, chiP, chiQ   Genome Browser M3D Gene expression COLOMBOS
Note(s): Rasmussen et. al., (2009) identified a ybfM-specific RNA species; however, it may be generated by premature termination in the ybfM-N intergenvic region or by degradation of the full-length transcript Rasmussen AA,2009
Regions protected by GalR and GalS upstream of the chiPp promoter were identified by DNase I footprinting Plumbridge J,2014 A binding site for both regulators was identified, 167.5 bp upstream of the chiPp promoter. In addition, two other weak binding sites for GalS nearer to the chiPp promoter were also identified Plumbridge J,2014 However, mutation in neither galR nor galS had any effect on chiP-lacZ expression Plumbridge J,2014
