Disease relevance of mtfA


High impact information on mtfA

  • The yeeI mutants exhibited increased generation times during growth on glucose, reduced transport of methyl-alpha-d-glucopyranoside, a substrate of EIICB(Glc), reduced induction of a ptsG-lacZ operon fusion, and reduced catabolite repression in lactose/glucose diauxic growth experiments [1].
  • The effect of a yeeI mutation could be suppressed by introducing a dgsA deletion, implying that the two proteins belong to the same signal transduction pathway and that Mlc is epistatic to YeeI [1].
