Probing activation of the prokaryotic arginine transcriptional regulator using chimeric proteins.

Abstract

The major transcription factors controlling arginine metabolism in Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis, ArgR and AhrC, respectively, are homologous multimeric proteins that form l -arginine-dependent DNA-binding complexes capable of repressing transcription of the biosynthetic genes (both), activating transcription of catabolic genes (AhrC only) or… (More)
