Synthesis of catabolite-sensitive enzymes is repressed in mutants defective in the general proteins (enzyme I and HPr) of the Escherichia coli phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent phosphotransferase system (ptsI and ptsH mutations). To elucidate the mechanism of this phenomenon we constructed isogenic strains carrying pts mutations as well as different lesions of(More)
A novel mutation, FruS localised in the fru operon was obtained. It uncouples expression of the genes determining synthesis of the fructose-specific transport proteins and fructose- l-phosphate kinase. In FruS bacteria the fruA and fruF genes (coding for Enzyme IIfru and FPr, respectively) are constitutive by expressed while fruK (encoding(More)
The phenomenon of glucose catabolite repression was studied in Escherichia coli mutants unable to transport this carbohydrate. The pts I,H mutant P34 was much less sensitive to permanent and transient repressive effect of glucose on β-galactosidase synthesis than parental type. The 1103 mutant with lack of enzyme 1 of the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent(More)
1. Two spontaneous Escherichia coli K12 mutants resistant to glucose catabolite repression were isolated using minimal agar plates with methyl alpha-D-glucoside. Mutants grow well on glucose and mannitol. 2. Glucose does not inhibit the inducible enzyme synthesis in isolated mutants: mutant cell (in contrast to parent cells) produce high levels of(More)
The genome of γ phage with thermosensitive repressor was inserted into the pts region of the Escherichia coli chromosome. This lysogenic culture possessed the PTS 1 phenotype at 30°C. A mutant strain with a deletion covering the ptsH gene was isolated after a prophage curing procedure. The deletion nature of the pts mutation was confirmed in genetical and(More)
Mutations in the pts genes (which code for the enzyme I and HPr protein — the general components of the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent phosphotransferase system) lead to decreases in enzyme-inducible synthesis at the level of transcription. The intracellular content of cyclic AMP in the ptsIH mutant was severely diminished, while the ptsH bacteria contain(More)
Mutants of bacteria belonging the genus Erwinia(Erwinia chrysanthemi andErwinia carotovora) with pleiotropic disturbances in the utilization of many substrates were obtained through chemical and transposon mutagenesis. Genetic studies revealed that these mutants had defective ptsI or ptsH genes responsible for the synthesis of common components of the(More)
Integration of a plasmid carrying the TnBP3 transposon of Bordetella pertussisinto the chromosome of Escherichia coliand transpositions of the integrated structure within a chromosome in the wild-type and mutant cells ptsHdevoid of the major Hpr protein of the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent phosphotransferase system were studied. When transposed to a new(More)
