High impact information on leuA

  • The most interesting case seems to be the leuA operon preceded by the LEU element that may fold into a conserved pseudoknot or an alternative structure [1].
  • One possibility is that the regulatory region of the leuA has been co-opted from some element involved in transposition [1].
