Disease relevance of glnR


High impact information on glnR

  • Northern (RNA) blots probed with putative glnR or glnA fragments revealed that 1.7- and 1.9-kb transcripts characteristic of wild-type cells were replaced by less abundant 7.0- and 7.2-kb transcripts in the femC::omega 2005 mutant [2].
