The Escherichia coli yjhA (renamed nanC) gene encodes a protein of the KdgM family of outer membrane-specific channels. It is transcribed divergently from fimB, a gene involved in the site-specific inversion of the region controlling transcription of the fimbrial structural genes but is separated from it by one of the largest intergenic regions in E. coli. We show that nanC expression is induced by N-acetylneuraminic acid and modulated by N-acetylglucosamine. This regulation occurs via the NanR… CONTINUE READING
