Gene context of Enterobacteriaceae

  • The ntrA, ntrB and ntrC products are responsible for regulating the transcription of many genes involved in the assimilation of poor nitrogen sources in enteric bacteria [26].
  • Homologues of the amtB gene of enteric bacteria exist in all three domains of life [27].
  • We also demonstrated that lpcA is conserved among enteric bacteria, all of which contain glyceromannoheptose in the inner core LPS, indicating that LpcA is an essential component in a conserved biosynthetic pathway of inner core LPS [28].
  • Regulation of glutamine-synthetase (GS) activity in enteric bacteria involves a complex cascade of events [29].
  • Here we report that the 78 nucleotide SraD RNA, which is highly conserved among Enterobacteriaceae, acts in destabilizing the ompA transcript when rapidly grown cells enter the stationary phase of growth [30].
