Disease relevance of fepB


High impact information on fepB

  • At the fepB operator, a 31 base-pair Fur-protected region was identified, corresponding to positions -19 to +12 with respect to the transcriptional start site [1].
  • The fepB-entC promoter-operator elements were confirmed by mutation, using the dual gene fusion system in multicopy and low copy number states [1].
  • In this study, we engineered a stable insertion mutation into the chromosomal region between the enterobactin genes fepB and entE [2].
  • The nucleotide sequence of fepB and neighboring regions was determined [3].
  • In vitro DNA-directed protein-synthesizing systems and experiments with the inhibitors dinitrophenol, carbonyl cyanide m-chlorophenylhydrazone, and ethanol demonstrated that the initial fepB translation product is processed [3].

Biological context of fepB

  • Control sequences directing iron-regulated expression of this polycistronic message were localized to the fepB-entC bidirectional promoter region [1].
  • The upstream regulatory region included a Fur box, indicating that fepB is iron regulated, which was verified by RNA dot blot experiments [3].
