H-NS regulates the flagellar master operon (flhDC) and thus is necessary for flagellation of Escherichia coli. However, the molecular mechanism of its regulation has remained unknown. Genetic screening of a transposon insertion abolishing the H-NS effect revealed a previously unidentified gene, named hdfR, encoding a LysR family protein. Binding of purified(More)
Escherichia coli K-12 can utilize D-allose, an all-cis hexose, as a sole carbon source. The operon responsible for D-allose metabolism was localized at 92.8 min of the E. coli linkage map. It consists of six genes, alsRBACEK, which are inducible by D-allose and are under the control of the repressor gene alsR. This operon is also subject to catabolite(More)
