Disease relevance of gadY


High impact information on gadY

  • A promoter mutation which abolished gadY expression resulted in a reduction in the amount of gadX mRNA during stationary phase [1].
  • Given that IS183 is encoded in the gad gene cluster and because of its role in regulating acid response genes reported here, this RNA has been renamed GadY [1].
