ABSTRACT We isolated an Escherichia coli mutant strain that suppresses the glycolate-negative phenotype of a strain deficient in both GlcA and LldP transporters of this compound. This suppressing phenotype was assigned to yjcG, a gene whose function was previously unknown, which was found to encode a membrane protein able to transport glycolate. On the basis of sequence similarity, the yjcG gene product was classified as a member of the sodium:solute symporter family. Northern experiments… Expand
Characterization of the CrbS/R Two-Component System in Pseudomonas fluorescens Reveals a New Set of Genes under Its Control and a DNA Motif Required for CrbR-Mediated Transcriptional Activation
TLDR
The CrbS/R system is characterized and a conserved DNA motif in the putative promoter region of acetate-utilization genes in the Gammaproteobacteria is identified that is essential for the CrbR-mediated transcriptional activation of genes under acetates-utilizing conditions. Expand
SATP (YaaH), a succinate-acetate transporter protein in Escherichia coli.
TLDR
The critical role of YaaH amino acid residues Leu¹³¹ and Ala¹⁶⁴ on the enhanced ability to transport lactate is demonstrated and its assignment as SatP: the Succinate-Acetate Transporter Protein is proposed. Expand
Transcription Analysis of Central Metabolism Genes in Escherichia coli. Possible Roles of σ38 in Their Expression, as a Response to Carbon Limitation
TLDR
It is proposed that the presence if real, of both s Sigma(70) and sigma(38) dependent promoters in all glycolytic genes and operons could allow a differential transcription of these central metabolism genes by both sigma subunits as an adaptation response to carbon limitation. Expand
Constitutive expression of selected genes from the pentose phosphate and aromatic pathways increases the shikimic acid yield in high-glucose batch cultures of an Escherichia coli strain lacking PTS and pykF
TLDR
An alternative platform to overproduce SA in a laboratory-evolved Escherichia coli strain based on plasmid-driven constitutive expression of six genes selected from the pentose phosphate and aromatic amino acid pathways, artificially arranged as an operon is reported. Expand
Physiological and Transcriptional Characterization of Escherichia Coli Strains Lacking Interconversion of Phosphoenolpyruvate and Pyruvate When Glucose and Acetate are Coutilized
Phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) is a precursor involved in the biosynthesis of aromatics and other valuable compounds in Escherichia coli. The PEP:carbohydrate phosphotransferase system (PTS) is the majorExpand
Improving the Expression of Recombinant Proteins in E. coli BL21 (DE3) under Acetate Stress: An Alkaline pH Shift Approach
TLDR
An approach of cultivating E. coli BL21 (DE3) at pH 8.0±0.5 is suggested to minimize the effects caused by acetate stress and the proposed strategy of an alkaline pH shift is a simple approach to solving similar bioprocessing problems in the production of biofuels and biochemicals from sugars. Expand
Acetate Metabolism in Escherichia coli Strains Lacking Phosphoenolpyruvate: Carbohydrate Phosphotransferase System; Evidence of Carbon Recycling Strategies and Futile Cycles
TLDR
Results indicate that growth differences on acetate in the PTS– derivatives are due to potential carbon recycling strategies, mainly in PB11, and futile carbon cycles, especially in PB12. Expand
Highly conserved genes in Geobacter species with expression patterns indicative of acetate limitation.
TLDR
The increased expression of these genes in response to acetate limitation, their high degree of conservation among Geobacter species and the ease with which they can be detected in environmental samples suggest that Group I apl genes of the Geobacteriaaceae may be suitable biomarkers for acetates limitation. Expand
A genome-wide screen for identifying all regulators of a target gene
TLDR
A new screening methodology for identifying all genes that control the expression of a target gene through genetic or metabolic interactions is developed, which confirms most of the known genetic regulators, including CRP–cAMP, IHF and components of the phosphotransferase system. Expand
The acetate uptake transporter family motif "NPAPLGL(M/S)" is essential for substrate uptake.
TLDR
The functional role of the AceTr conserved motif NPAPLGL(M/S) is described and the roles of amino acid residues R122 and Q125 of SatP as essential for protein activity are unveiled. Expand

Cloning, characterization, and functional expression of acs, the gene which encodes acetyl coenzyme A synthetase in Escherichia coli
TLDR
It is concluded that the Escherichia coli open reading frame encodes the acetate-activating enzyme, Acs, which activated acetate across a wide range of concentrations in a coenzyme A-dependent manner. Expand
The gene yghK linked to the glc operon of Escherichia coli encodes a permease for glycolate that is structurally and functionally similar to L-lactate permease.
TLDR
Transcription studies have shown that the yghK gene (proposed name glcA) is transcribed from the same promoter as the other glc structural genes and thus belongs to the glc operon, and mutant analysis proved that L-lactate permease is mainly responsible for its uptake. Expand
Identification and characterization of the ackA (acetate kinase A)-pta (phosphotransacetylase) operon and complementation analysis of acetate utilization by an ackA-pta deletion mutant of Escherichia coli.
TLDR
Nucleotide sequencing of the pta gene revealed that it is able to produce a polypeptide comprising 714 amino acid residues, which starts at 70 base pairs downstream from the stop codon of the ackA gene. Expand
ς70 Is the Principal Sigma Factor Responsible for Transcription of acs, Which Encodes Acetyl Coenzyme A Synthetase in Escherichia coli
TLDR
Sigma(70) is the sigma factor primarily responsible for the acs transcription that cells induce during mid-exponential phase, and sigma(S) partially inhibits that transcription as cells enter stationary phase. Expand
The Ascorbate Transporter of Escherichia coli
TLDR
It is concluded that SgaT represents a novel prototypical enzyme IIC that functions with SgaA and SgaB to allow phosphoryl transfer from HPr(his-P) to L-ascorbate via the phosphoryL transfer pathway. Expand
Regulation of Acetyl Coenzyme A Synthetase inEscherichia coli
TLDR
It is proposed that cells induce acs, and thus their ability to assimilate acetate, in response to rising cyclic AMP levels, falling oxygen partial pressure, and the flux of carbon through acetate-associated pathways. Expand
Sequencing and characterization of a gene cluster encoding the enzymes for L-rhamnose metabolism in Escherichia coli
TLDR
Transcriptional fusions of the three putative promoter regions to lacZ showed that only the rhaB leader region acted as a promoter, as indicated by the high beta-galactosidase activity induced by rhamnose, while no significant activity from the rHAA and rhaD constructions was detected. Expand
The enzymic interconversion of acetate and acetyl-coenzyme A in Escherichia coli.
TLDR
Although Pta- and Ack- mutants are greatly impaired in their growth on acetate, they incorporate [2-14C]acetate added to cultures growing on glycerol, but not on glucose; an inducible acetyl-CoA synthetase effects this uptake of acetate. Expand
Role of the intercistronic region in post‐transcriptional control of gene expression in the histidine transport operon of Salmonella typhimurium: involvement of REP sequences
TLDR
The results indicate that intra‐operonic regulation is due to a combination of factors including efficiency of translational initiation, mRNA degradation, and retroregulation of hisJ expression, and suggest that the REP (Repetitive Extragenic Palin‐dromic) sequences may interfere with translation of the hisQ gene and affect upstream messenger RNA stability by protecting it from 3’to 5’nuclease degradation.

A Monocarboxylate Permease of Rhizobium leguminosarum Is the First Member of a New Subfamily of Transporters
TLDR
Characterization of R. leguminosarum permease (MctP) confirmed that it transports alanine and other monocarboxylates and sequence comparisons suggest that it is the first characterized permease of a new subfamily of transporters. Expand
