High impact information on fbp

  • Growth in the presence of ammonium yielded low levels of transcripts encoding all genes of the operon, while growth under nitrogen-fixing conditions resulted in a large increase of transcripts encoding for fbp and zwf-opcA [1].
  • The presence in both strains of a gene fbp, encoding fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase, upstream from zwf strongly suggests that the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway in these organisms may function to completely oxidize glucose 6-phosphate to CO2 [2].
  • The amino acid sequence of fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase does not support the idea of its light activation by a thiol/disulfide exchange mechanism [2].
