Glutamine-rich toxic proteins GrtA, GrtB and GrtC together with the antisense RNA AsgR constitute a toxin-antitoxin-like system in Corynebacterium glutamicum.


The Corynebacterium glutamicum R grtA (cgR_2936), grtB (cgR_2934) and grtC (cgR_2933) genes were identified as paralogs encoding glutamine-rich toxic proteins. We also identified a new antisense small RNA AsgR (antisense sRNA for grtA) that overlaps the 3' end of the grtA gene. Single over-expressions of grtA, grtB and grtC resulted in complete inhibition… (More)
