Disease relevance of lacY


High impact information on lacY


Biological context of lacY

  • Determination of lacZ and lacY mRNA levels revealed a pattern of reduction that was similar to the Lac-proteins, indicating a relation between translation inhibition and mRNA degradation as a response to antisense PNA treatment [7].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of lacY

  • Isothermal titration calorimetry has been applied to characterize the thermodynamics of ligand binding to wild-type lactose permease (LacY) and a mutant (C154G) that strongly favors an inward facing conformation [3].
