In order to isolate transcriptional regulatory proteins involved in L-methionine-dependent repression in Corynebacterium glutamicum, proteins binding to the putative promoter region upstream of the metY gene were isolated by DNA affinity chromatography. One of the isolated proteins was identified as a putative transcriptional repressor of the TetR-family by a mass spectrometry fingerprint technique based on the complete C. glutamicum genome sequence. The respective gene, designated mcbR, was… CONTINUE READING
