Regulation summary diagram for aegA

Summary:
AegA has C-terminal similarity to GltD and N-terminal similarity to iron-sulfur proteins [Cavicchioli96].

An aegA mutant does not have obvious phenotypes with respect to respiration or fermentation [Cavicchioli96]. The mutant also shows no defect in metabolizing ammonium or various amino acids (L-alanine, L-arginine, L-glutamic acid, glycine, or DL-serine) as a source of nitrogen, or in use of various sources of carbon [Cavicchioli96].

AegA, "anaerobically expressed gene" [Cavicchioli96].

Regulation has been described [Cavicchioli96]. The aegA gene is regulated by Fnr, NarXL, and NarQ (but not ArcA), induced under anaerobic conditions and repressed in the presence of nitrate (anaerobic) [Cavicchioli96].
