Leucine-responsive regulatory protein, IS1 insertions, and the negative regulator FaeA control the expression of the fae (K88) operon in Escherichia coli.

Abstract

Nucleotide sequence analysis of the fae operon encoding the biosynthesis of K88 fimbriae revealed the presence of two divergently transcribed regulatory genes, faeA and faeB, separated by two inverted IS1 insertions. The amino acid sequences of the regulatory proteins FaeA and FaeB show similarity to the primary structure of corresponding regulatory… (More)
