Carbon catabolite repression in bacteria: many ways to make the most out of nutrients
Most bacteria can selectively use substrates from a mixture of different carbon sources. The presence of preferred carbon sources prevents the expression, and often also the activity, of catabolicExpand

Carbon catabolite repression in bacteria.
Carbon catabolite repression (CCR) is a regulatory mechanism by which the expression of genes required for the utilization of secondary sources of carbon is prevented by the presence of a preferredExpand

PRD--a protein domain involved in PTS-dependent induction and carbon catabolite repression of catabolic operons in bacteria.
Several operon-specific transcriptional regulators, including antiterminators and activators, contain a duplicated conserved domain, the PTS regulation domain (PRD). These duplicated domains modifyExpand

Regulation of carbon catabolism in Bacillus species.
The gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilisis capable of using numerous carbohydrates as single sources of carbon and energy. In this review, we discuss the mechanisms of carbon catabolism and itsExpand

Novel Activities of Glycolytic Enzymes in Bacillus subtilis
Glycolysis is one of the most important metabolic pathways in heterotrophic organisms. Several genes encoding glycolytic enzymes are essential in many bacteria even under conditions when neitherExpand

Temporal activation of beta-glucanase synthesis in Bacillus subtilis is mediated by the GTP pool.
beta-Glucanase synthesis was temporally activated in Bacillus subtilis at the onset of stationary phase. This regulation was dependent upon a drop in the GTP concentration in response to nutrientExpand

A novel protein kinase that controls carbon catabolite repression in bacteria.
HPr(Ser) kinase is the sensor in a multicomponent phosphorelay system that controls catabolite repression, sugar transport and carbon metabolism in gram-positive bacteria. Unlike most other proteinExpand

The Bacillus subtilis crh gene encodes a HPr-like protein involved in carbon catabolite repression.
Carbon catabolite repression (CCR) of several Bacillus subtilis catabolic genes is mediated by ATP-dependent phosphorylation of histidine-containing protein (HPr), a phosphocarrier protein of theExpand

Transcriptional profiling of gene expression in response to glucose in Bacillus subtilis: regulation of the central metabolic pathways.
Chemoheterotrophic bacteria use a few central metabolic pathways for carbon catabolism and energy production as well as for the generation of the main precursors for anabolic reactions. All sourcesExpand

Glycerol metabolism is important for cytotoxicity of Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
Glycerol is one of the few carbon sources that can be utilized by Mycoplasma pneumoniae. Glycerol metabolism involves uptake by facilitated diffusion, phosphorylation, and the oxidation of glycerolExpand
