PunR DNA-binding transcriptional dual regulator

Synonyms: PunR
PunR, formerly named YdhB, regulates a gene involved in the purine transport process in the presence of adenosine [1]. This protein belongs to the LysR family HTH type of transcriptional regulators [1, 2]. It appears to recognize and bind to a palindromic DNA binding motif of 23 bp [1]. The punR gene is located in the genome in an inverted position from its target gene [1]. This arrangement in the genome appears to be conserved in other proteobacteria [1]. A punR knockout mutant reduces cellular growth under nitrogen-limiting conditions [1]. Genome-wide PunR binding sites were determined in vivo by chromatin immunoprecipitation method combined with lambda exonuclease digestion (ChIP-exo) in glucose M9 minimal medium [3]. Read more >
