Disease relevance of sulA


High impact information on sulA

  • One fusion, LexA1-87-FadR102-239, was able to repress the LexA reporter sulA-lacZ, and beta-galactosidase activities were derepressed by fatty acids, suggesting that the fusion protein had determinants both for dimerization and ligand binding [2].
