Disease relevance of argR

  • In this study we analyzed 537 E. coli strains and show that the argR allele in E. coli B, which causes deregulation, is rare in isolates obtained from natural sources [1].

High impact information on argR


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of argR

  • Moreover, sequence analysis of 85 strains shows no evidence of selection at the arginine repressor locus [1].
