Regulation summary diagram for yggX

YggX is proposed to play a role in oxidation resistance of iron-sulfur clusters [Pomposiello03]. YggX is found at high abundance in vivo [Link97].

A solution structure of YggX has been determined [Osborne05]. C7 of YggX is redox-sensitive [Leichert08].

A yggX mutant shows paraquat sensitivity, a paraquat-induced aconitase defect [Pomposiello03] and increased sensitivity to redox stress [Leichert08]. Multicopy yggX expression results in elevated aconitase activity, compared to wild type [Pomposiello03].

Transcription of yggX is induced by SoxS overproduction or by oxidative stress [Pomposiello03]. YggX is upregulated under glucose-limited fed-batch conditions [Raman05].
