Disease relevance of ECs1915


High impact information on ECs1915

  • Here, it is reported that single base substitutions in the fnr gene encoding the oxygen-responsive transcription regulator FNR (fumarate and nitrate reduction regulator) are sufficient to confer a hemolytic phenotype on E. coli K12, the widely used laboratory strain [3].
  • The 5' end of the mRNA transcript is 38-39 nucleotides downstream from the center of a motif that bears sequence homology to bacterial fnr promoters [4].
