The B. subtilis trp operon is regulated by transcription attenuation in response to changes in the intracellular level of tryptophan by the mtrB gene product, TRAP. TRAP interaction with the 11 (G/U)AG repeats present within the nascenttrp leader transcript promotes formation of the intrinsic terminator by blocking formation of the overlapping antiterminator structure (Fig. 1). An essentially identical transcription attenuation mechanism was shown to regulate expression of the B. pumilus trp operon (20). In addition, the trp operon leaders of B. caldotenax and B. stearothermophilus contain multiple triplet repeats, as well as overlapping antiterminator and terminator structures. Thus, it appears that all four of these bacilli regulate trp operon expression by a conserved attenuation mechanism.. In this study, the function of an RNA secondary structure predicted to form at the 5′ end of the B. subtilis trp leader transcript was examined. The conservation of similar structures in thetrp operon ...
The trp operon is an operon-a group of genes that is used, or transcribed, together-that codes for the components for production of tryptophan. The trp operon is present in many bacteria, but was first characterized in Escherichia coli. The operon is regulated so that when tryptophan is present in the environment, the genes for tryptophan synthesis are not expressed. It was an important experimental system for learning about gene regulation, and is commonly used to teach gene regulation. Discovered in 1953 by Jacques Monod and colleagues, the trp operon in E. coli was the first repressible operon to be discovered. While the lac operon can be activated by a chemical (allolactose), the tryptophan (Trp) operon is inhibited by a chemical (tryptophan). This operon contains five structural genes: trp E, trp D, trp C, trp B, and trp A, which encode tryptophan synthetase. It also contains a repressive regulator gene called trp R. trp R has a promoter where RNA polymerase binds and synthesizes mRNA for a ...
The expression of the Kdp system for K+ uptake in Escherichia coli requires the products of two genes, kdpD and kdpE. These genes constitute an operon adjacent to the kdpABC operon that encodes the three membrane protein subunits of Kdp. Both operons are transcribed in the same direction and overlap; the kdpDE promoter is in kdpC, the last gene of the kdpABC operon. Transcription of the kdpDE operon is at a low level when Kdp is not expressed; transcription increases about 10-fold when kdpABC is turned on, indicating significant read-through of the kdpDE operon by transcripts beginning at the promoter of kdpABC operon. The proximal region of the kdpD gene is the site of most mutations that lead to constitutive expression of the kdpABC operon. ...

Operon structure is an important organization feature of bacterial genomes. Many sets of genes occur in the same order on multiple genomes; these conserved gene groupings represent candidate operons. This study describes a computational method to estimate the likelihood that such conserved gene sets form operons. The method was used to analyze 34 bacterial and archaeal genomes, and yielded more than 7600 pairs of genes that are highly likely (P: ,/= 0.98) to belong to the same operon. The sensitivity of our method is 30-50% for the Escherichia coli genome. The predicted gene pairs are available from our World Wide Web site www.tigr.org/tigr-scripts/operons/operons.cgi.. ...
The tryptophan operon is a repressible operon that is a permanently turned on. Evidence for transcription antitermination control of. Rather, multicopy tnac plasmids inhibited induction by preventing tryptophaninduced transcription. We hypothesize that a tryptophan activated antiterminator protein mediates induction by suppressing the rhodependent termination sites in the leader region, thus allowing transcription to proceed into the tna operon structural gene region. C turned off only when glucose is present in the growth medium. Tryptophan is one of the 20 amino acids out of which all proteins are made. Expression of the tryptophanase tna operon in escherichia coli is regulated by catabolite repression and tryptophaninduced transcription antitermination. Transcription of the trp operon in lactococcus lactis is. Using available experimental data as a training set, we developed a program for prediction of attenuators named lllm 7, 38 and applied it to the analysis of upstream regions of ...

A null mutation in the mexS gene of P. aeruginosa yielded increased expression of a 3-gene operon containing a gene, xenB, whose product is highly homologous to a xenobiotic reductase in Pseudomonas fluorescens shown to remove nitro groups from trinitrotouleune and nitroglycerin (Blehert, D.S. et al. 1999. J. Bacteriol. 181:6254). This expression, which paralleled an increase in mexEF-oprN expression in the same mutant, was, like mexEF-oprN, dependent on the MexT LysR-family positive regulator previously implicated in mexEF-oprN expression. As nitrosation is a well-known product of nitrosative stress, a role of xenB (and the co-regulated mexEF-oprN) in a nitrosative stress response was hypothesized and tested. Using s-nitrosoglutathione (GSNO) as a source of nitrosative stress, expression of xenB and mexEF-oprN was shown to be GSNO-inducible, though in the case of xenB this was only seen in a mutant lacking MexEF-OprN. In both instances this GSNO-inducible expression was dependent upon MexT. The ...
We combine comparative genomic measures and the distance separating adjacent genes to predict operons in 124 completely sequenced prokaryotic genomes. Our method automatically tailors itself to each genome using sequence information alone, and thus can be applied to any prokaryote. For Escherichia coli K12 and Bacillus subtilis, our method is 85 and 83% accurate, respectively, which is similar to the accuracy of methods that use the same features but are trained on experimentally characterized transcripts. In Halobacterium NRC-1 and in Helicobacterpylori, our method correctly infers that genes in operons are separated by shorter distances than they are in E.coli, and its predictions using distance alone are more accurate than distance-only predictions trained on a database of E.coli transcripts. We use microarray data from sixphylogenetically diverse prokaryotes to show that combining intergenic distance with comparative genomic measures further improves accuracy and that our method is broadly effective

Dr. Poul Valentin-Hansen and colleagues at the University of Southern Denmark report that a small RNA, called Spot 42, functions by an antisense mechanism to differentially regulate gene expression in the galactose operon. The E. coli galactose operon is a cluster of four contiguous genes that are expressed as a group and encode enzymes that regulate galactose sugar metabolism. Like all bacterial operons, the four gal genes (galE, T, K, and M) are transcribed into one polycistronic mRNA message. Interestingly though, although all four gal genes are translated from this one polycistronic message, the relative synthesis of the encoded enzymes differs depending upon metabolic conditions. Although this discoordinate expression of the galactose operon was characterized more than 20 years ago, this report by Dr. Valentin-Hansen and colleagues provides the first mechanistic insight into the process. Dr. Valentin-Hansen and colleagues have discovered that Spot 42, a small, 109-nucleotide RNA whose ...
Two divergently transcribed operons in Escherichia coli required for the expression of fibronectin- and Congo red-binding curli polymers were identified and characterized by transposon mutagenesis, sequencing and transcriptional analyses, as well as for their ability to produce the curli subunit protein. The csgBA operon encodes CsgA, the major subunit protein of the fibre, and CsgB, a protein with sequence homology to CsgA. A non-polar csgB mutant is unaffected in its production of CsgA, but the subunit protein is not assembled into insoluble fibre polymers. A third open reading frame, orfC, positioned downstream of csgA may affect some functional property of curli since an insertion in this putative gene abolishes the autoagglutinating ability typical of curliated cells without affecting the production of the fibre. The promoter for the oppositely transcribed csgDEFG operon was identified by primer extension and shown, like the csgBA promoter, to be dependent upon the alternate stationary ...

The products of the Escherichia coli umuDC operon and its plasmid-borne analog, mucAB, are required for mutagenesis caused by UV light and by many chemicals. We have determined the nucleotide sequences of umuDC and mucAB and present comparisons of these sequences. The two operons are 52% homologous at the nucleotide level. Open reading frames corresponding in position and size to the umu and muc genes have been identified. The reading frames of umuD and umuC overlap by 1 base pair, and the reading frames of mucA and mucB overlap by 13 base pairs. The predicted amino acid sequences of the UmuD and MucA proteins are 41% homologous; those of the UmuC and MucB proteins are 55% homologous. Considerable homology has also been detected between UmuD, MucA, and the COOH-terminal domains of the LexA repressor and the repressors of phage lambda, 434, and P22. Complementation analyses reveal that MucA protein cannot substitute for UmuD in a umuD- umuC+ host and that MucB protein cannot substitute for UmuC ...
Not sure why I cant edit the above part, but I stumbled across something that seemed to be of use; that secondary sugars might be sugars the require cAMP and CRP to be the effector of the operon(along with the operon inducer of course).

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: REGULATION OF PROTEIN SYNTHESIS: AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE REPRESSOR-OPERATOR HYPOTHESIS* M. GRUBER and R. N. CAMPAGNE\ The synthesis ofproteins is often regulated by specific effectors, i.e., inducers and co-repressors. These substances-usually compounds of low molecular weight-can elicit or inhibit the co-ordinated synthesis of a group of metabolically related proteins, e.g., the enzymes of a metabolic pathway. This, and genetic evidence, ledJacob and Monod [i, 2] to propose the Operon, a stretch of DNA comprising several structural genes, thus coding for a number of polypeptide chains. At one end of this Operon, eitherjust outside or just within the first structural gene, an operator was assumed switching the operon on and off. The effectors of protein synthesis, or possibly their immediate derivatives, were assumed to interact with a repressor, preventing the transcription ofthe operon into RNA. The stereospecific interaction ...

For the purposes of the AP Biology exam, the material on operons shown above is probably sufficient. But theres another level to understanding prokaryotic gene regulation: If youre interested, go for it!. Weve seen above how the Lac operon allows E. coli to turn on production of enzymes to digest lactose when lactose is in its environment, and to turn production of these same enzymes off when lactose is not in the environment. But theres an even more subtle regulatory scheme. If an E. coli cell is simultaneously fed with both lactose and glucose, it will preferentially use glucose, and only turn to lactose when glucose is short supply. From an energetic perspective, this makes sense. Glucose is the simplest carbohydrate: the genes for metabolizing it are always turned on. Lactose, on the other hand, requires special enzymes to process. Given the choice, its energetically favorable for the cell to break down glucose first. But what system allows E. coli to express this preference?. The ...

Ubiquitin (Ub)-mediated signaling is one of the hallmarks of all eukaryotes. Prokaryotic homologs of Ub (ThiS and MoaD) and E1 ligases have been studied in relation to sulfur incorporation reactions in thiamine and molybdenum/tungsten cofactor biosynthesis. However, there is no evidence for entire protein modification systems with Ub-like proteins and deconjugation by deubiquitinating enzymes in prokaryotes. Hence, the evolutionary assembly of the eukaryotic Ub-signaling apparatus remains unclear. We systematically analyzed prokaryotic Ub-related β-grasp fold proteins using sensitive sequence profile searches and structural analysis. Consequently, we identified novel Ub-related proteins beyond the characterized ThiS, MoaD, TGS, and YukD domains. To understand their functional associations, we sought and recovered several conserved gene neighborhoods and domain architectures. These included novel associations involving diverse sulfur metabolism proteins, siderophore biosynthesis and the gene encoding

The kil-kor regulon of the self-transmissible, broad-host-range plasmid RK2 is a unique network with eight coregulated operons. Among the genes encoded by the kil-kor regulon are trfA, which encodes the replication initiator, and several kil loci (kilA, kilB, kilC, and kilE), each of which is lethal to the host cell in the absence of appropriate negative regulatory elements encoded by the korA, korB, korC, and korE determinants. We have proposed that the functions of the kil loci are related to RK2 maintenance or host range. Here, we report the nucleotide sequence of a 2.44-kb region that includes the lethal kilB determinant. We identified the first three genes of the kilB operon (designated klbA, klbB, and klbC), and we determined by deletion analysis that the host-lethal phenotype requires klbB. The predicted amino acid sequence of the 34,995-Da klbA product reveals a potential ATP-binding fold. The klbB product is predicted to be a membrane protein with a molecular mass of 15,012 Da with ...

A restriction fragment which contained the his control region was identified by its ability to activate the tetracycline resistance (Tc(r)) gene on this vector. Expression of Tc(r) by bacteria containing the his promoter-active plasmid was found to be under the attenuation control of the his promoter. DNA sequence analysis of the his control region revealed a base sequence homology of approximately 86% of the analogous DNA sequences of E. coli and Salmonella typhimurium. Most of the base alterations in the K. pneumoniae DNA sequence were found to reside in regions flanking the transcriptional and translational regulatory sites.. AB - The ...
The gab operon is responsible for the conversion of γ-aminobutyrate (GABA) to succinate. The gab operon comprises three structural genes - gabD, gabT and gabP - that encode for a succinate semialdehyde dehydrogenase, GABA transaminase and a GABA permease respectively. There is a regulatory gene csiR, downstream of the operon, that codes for a putative transcriptional repressor and is activated when nitrogen is limiting. The gab operon has been characterized in Escherichia coli and significant homologies for the enzymes have been found in organisms such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, rats and humans. Limited nitrogen conditions activate the gab genes. The enzymes produced by these genes convert GABA to succinate, which then enters the TCA cycle, to be used as a source of energy. The gab operon is also known to contribute to polyamine homeostasis during nitrogen-limited growth and to maintain high internal glutamate concentrations under stress conditions. The gab operon consists of three structural ...

In bacteria, translation re-initiation is crucial for synthesizing proteins encoded by genes that are organized into operons. The mechanisms regulating translation re-initiation remain, however, poorly understood. We now describe the ribosome termination structure (RTS), a conserved and stable mRNA secondary structure localized immediately downstream of stop codons, and provide experimental evidence for its role in governing re-initiation efficiency in a synthetic Escherichia coli operon. We further report that RTSs are abundant, being associated with 18%-65% of genes in 128 analyzed bacterial genomes representing all phyla, and are selectively depleted when translation re-initiation is advantageous yet selectively enriched so as to insulate translation when re-initiation is deleterious. Our results support a potentially universal role for the RTS in controlling translation termination-insulation and re-initiation across bacteria. The mechanisms for regulating translation re-initiation in ...

The growth and activity of some Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains are stimulated by the presence of nondigestible fructooligosaccharides (FOS), which are selectively fermented by specific intestinal bacteria. Consumption of FOS, therefore, enriches for those bacteria that possess metabolic pathways necessary for FOS metabolism. In this study, a DNA microarray consisting of 7,680 random genomic library fragments of Lactobacillus paracasei 1195 was used to examine genes involved in the utilization of FOS in this organism. Differential expression profiles between cells grown on FOS and those grown on glucose provided a basis for identifying genes specifically induced by FOS. Several of the FOS-induced genes shared sequence identity with genes encoding β-fructosidases and components of phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent phosphotransferase systems (PTS). These genes were organized in a putative operon, designated the fos operon, that may play an essential role in FOS utilization. The complete 7,631-bp
TY - JOUR. T1 - Regulation of σ(B) levels and activity in Bacillus subtilis. AU - Benson, A. K.. AU - Haldenwang, W. G.. PY - 1993/1/1. Y1 - 1993/1/1. N2 - The sigB operon of Bacillus subtilis encodes σ(B) plus three additional proteins (RsbV, RsbW, and RsbX) that regulate σ(B) activity. Using an anti- σ(B) monoclonal antibody to monitor the levels of σ(B) protein, P(SPAC) to control the expression of the sigB operon, and a ctc-lacZ reporter system to monitor σ(B) activity, we observed that the rsbV and rsbW products control σ(B) activity at the ctc promoter independently of their effects on σ(B) levels. In contrast, RsbX was found to have no effect on expression of ctc when the sigB operon was controlled by P(SPAC). The data are consistent with RsbV and RsbW being regulators of σ(B) activity and RsbX acting primarily as a negative regulator of sigB operon expression. Evidence that stationary- phase induction of the σ(B)-dependent ctc promoter is accomplished by a reduction in ...
Profiling the microbiome on low biomass samples is challenging as these samples tend to have DNA from other sources. The usual approach is to sequence regions of the 16S rRNA gene, although this can fail to identify the microbial species present. We sequenced the full-length 16S rRNA and the whole rrn operon of a clinical isolate, mock communities and skin samples, on the Oxford Nanopore MinION and found that sequencing the rrn operon gave better resolution at the species level than sequencing 16S rRNA alone.

A putative operon encoding a probable zinc-responsive regulatory element (zur) and components of an ABC-type transporter (mreA mreB) have been characterized in Staphylococcus aureus. The zur gene was inactivated but apparently this did not alter Zn2+ uptake. Expression of mreAB zur is at a low level under a range of ion conditions. To allow inducible expression of the operon, a construct was made placing it under the control of the IPTG-inducible Pspac promoter. Using this approach, it was shown that zur is able to repress expression of the entire operon in a Zn2+-dependent manner, and that mreA and mreB are likely to be involved in high-affinity ion uptake. zur has no apparent role in pathogenicity in a lesion model of S. aureus infection.

The widespread natural ability of RNA to sense small molecules and regulate genes has become an important tool for synthetic biology in applications as diverse as environmental sensing and metabolic engineering. Previous work in RNA synthetic biology has engineered RNA mechanisms that independently regulate multiple targets and integrate regulatory signals. However, intracellular regulatory networks built with these systems have required proteins to propagate regulatory signals. In this work, we remove this requirement and expand the RNA synthetic biology toolkit by engineering three unique features of the plasmid pT181 antisense-RNA-mediated transcription attenuation mechanism. First, because the antisense RNA mechanism relies on RNA-RNA interactions, we show how the specificity of the natural system can be engineered to create variants that independently regulate multiple targets in the same cell. Second, because the pT181 mechanism controls transcription, we show how independently acting ...
LeuO is a dual transcriptional regulator that regulates genes involved in leucine biosynthesis [1, 15], genes involved in the utilization of certain β-glucosides [5, 7] and genes encoding LuxR-type transcription factors [14] It is also involved in the bacterial stringent response [16]. LeuO is one of the transcription factors that counteracts H-NS-mediated repression of specific loci [1, 5, 7, 17, 18] Overproduction of LeuO causes the phenotype Bgl+, since LeuO can unsilence the bglGFB operon, which is silenced (phenotypically Bgl ) under laboratory conditions [7] LeuO is part of the RpoS/H-NS/Hfq/LeuO/DsrA RNA regulatory cascade that controls the bglGFH operon [5]and translation of rpoS, particularly at low temperatures [19, 20]. LeuO belongs to the LysR transcriptional regulator family and contains a helix-turn-helix DNA-binding domain [4, 7] No LeuO consensus binding sequence is known [14]. LeuO activates transcription of the divergent leuLABCD operon [2]. An in vivo genetic selection ...

The growing conviction that lateral gene transfer plays a significant role in prokaryote genealogy opens up a need for comprehensive evaluations of gene-enzyme systems on a case-by-case basis. Genes of tryptophan biosynthesis are frequently organized as whole-pathway operons, an attribute that is expected to facilitate multi-gene transfer in a single step. We have asked whether events of lateral gene transfer are sufficient to have obscured our ability to track the vertical genealogy that underpins tryptophan biosynthesis. In 47 complete-genome Bacteria, the genes encoding the seven catalytic domains that participate in primary tryptophan biosynthesis were distinguished from any paralogs or xenologs engaged in other specialized functions. A reliable list of orthologs with carefully ascertained functional roles has thus been assembled and should be valuable as an annotation resource. The protein domains associated with primary tryptophan biosynthesis were then concatenated, yielding single amino-acid

Chapter 19) (a) Minimal defective prophage created by removal of the N through kil genes in the P L operon and replacement of rexA and rexB with a drug resistance cassette, either ampicillin (bla) or chloramphenicol (cat). With this system, raising the temperature induces the operon directly without N-mediated antitermination. (b) Minimal prophage moved onto a high-copy-number vector. The pBR322 origin of DNA replication between nucleotide coordinates 2348 and 3296 was amplified.This linear PCR product was used to clone the minimal prophage in a gap repair reaction. This linear pBR322 fragment contains ori but lacks an antibiotic resistance gene, so only those plasmid clones that have undergone successful recombineering will contain an antibiotic resistance marker inherited from the prophage.The high-copy-number plasmids thus generated, pSIM2 and pSIM4 (Cmr and Ampr, respectively),were used as targets in subsequent recombineering reactions.The pBR322 segment was replaced precisely with a linear ...

Prokaryotic genes associated with a specific function are often grouped together in contiguous regions of the genome known as gene clusters [1]. Many of the functions encoded in these clusters are of interest to biotechnology [2]. Unfortunately, gene clusters are frequently subject to complex and highly redundant host regulation. However, through a process known as refactoring, gene clusters can be recoded to systematically eliminate native regulation [2]. This process of refactoring aims to reduce the overall complexity of genetic systems and allows them to be tailored for a particular purpose. The term refactoring is borrowed from computer science and refers to the alteration of a programs underlying code without changing its functionality [2]. This term was first applied in biology to describe the top-down approach of simplifying the phage T7 genome [3], but it is used here to refer to the bottom-up approach of eliminating native regulation of gene clusters and replacing it with ...
