Disease relevance of galP

  • These observations identified a protein of apparent Mr = 37,000 as the product of the galP gene of E. coli [1].

High impact information on galP

  • GalS has even less affinity for the external operator of galP, which codes for galactose permease, the major low-affinity galactose transporter in the cell [2].
