The genes coding for the enzymes of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) uptake and metabolism (nagA, nagB, and nagE) are located next to glutaminyl-tRNA synthetase gene (glnS) in the Escherichia coli genome. We determined the nucleotide sequence of the nagE (ptsN) gene, encoding the GlcNAc-specific enzyme II (NagE) of the phosphoenolpyruvate: sugar phosphotransferase system, and the sequence of the putative nagB gene, for glucosamine-6-phosphate deaminase. S1 mapping identified the mRNA transcript for… CONTINUE READING
