The existence of a global gene regulatory system in the hyperthermophilic archaeon Sulfolobus solfataricus is described. The system is responsive to carbon source quality and acts at the level of transcription to coordinate synthesis of three physically unlinked glycosyl hydrolases implicated in carbohydrate utilization. The specific activities of three enzymes, an alpha-glucosidase (malA), a beta-glycosidase (lacS), and an alpha-amylase, were reduced 4-, 20-, and 10-fold, respectively, in… CONTINUE READING
