Disease relevance of malX


High impact information on malX

  • We now report that MalI regulates an adjacent and divergently oriented operon containing malX and malY [1].
  • We conclude that malX encodes a phosphotransferase system enzyme II that can recognize glucose and maltose as substrates even though these sugars may not represent the natural substrates of the system [1].
  • Also, a delta malE malT(Con) strain that is unable to grow on maltose due to its maltose transport defect becomes Mal+ after introduction of malI::Tn10 and the plasmid carrying malX [1].
