The bgl system represents a family of sensory systems composed of membrane-bound sugar-sensors and transcriptional antiterminators, which regulate expression of genes involved in sugar utilization in response to the presence of the corresponding sugar in the growth medium. The BglF sensor catalyzes different activities depending on its stimulation state: in its non-stimulated state, it phosphorylates the BglG transcriptional regulator, thus inactivating it; in the presence of the stimulating… CONTINUE READING
