In both Salmonella typhimurium and Escherichia coli, CysB is a LysR family transcriptional activator, which regulates genes of the cysteine regulon. Transcription activation of cys genes also requires an inducer, N-acetyl-L-serine, and cysB mutants that do not require inducer are termed constitutive, i.e. cysBc. After finding that two independently isolated(More)
Expression of the cysteine regulon in Salmonella typhimurium and Escherichia coli is controlled by the LysR-type transcriptional activator CysB and by the inducer N-acetyl-L-serine. Sulphide and thiosulphate are anti-inducers. Two highly purified constitutive CysB proteins, CysB(T149M) and CysB(T149P), were found to bind to the cysJIH, cysK and cysP(More)
