Carbon catabolite repression (CCR) in bacteria is generally regarded as a regulatory mechanism to ensure sequential utilization of carbohydrates. Selection of the carbon sources is mainly made at the level of carbohydrate-specific induction. Since virtually all carbohydrate catabolic genes or operons are regulated by specific control proteins and require inducers for high level expression, direct control of the activity of regulators or control of inducer formation is an efficient measure to… CONTINUE READING
