In Escherichia coli the glc operon involved in glycolate utilization is located at 67.3 min and formed by genes encoding the enzymes glycolate oxidase (glcDEF) and malate synthase G (glcB). Their expression from a single promoter upstream of glcD is induced by growth on glycolate and regulated by the activator encoded by the divergently transcribed gene glcC. Gene yghK, located 350 bp downstream of glcB, encodes a hydrophobic protein highly similar to the L-lactate permease encoded by lldP… CONTINUE READING
