High impact information on amtB

  • In bacteria and archaea, the Amt structural genes (amtB) are invariably linked to glnK, which encodes a member of the P(II) signal transduction protein family, proteins that regulate enzyme activity and gene expression in response to the intracellular nitrogen status [1].

Biological context of amtB

  • GlnD catalyzes these reactions in response to high or low levels of cytoplasmic glutamine, respectively, and indirectly directs the expression of nitrogen-regulated genes, e.g., the glnK-amtB operon [2].
