Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Polypeptide: protein potentially involved in copper homeostasis

Gene: cutC Accession Numbers: G7024 (EcoCyc), b1874, ECK1875

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Regulation summary diagram for cutC

A combination of mutations in nlpE and cutC results in increased sensitivity to copper [Gupta95]. The copper sensitivity phenotype was later found to be due to disruption of MicL downregulation of Lpp [Guo14].

Gene start position corrected based on phylogenetic conservation and ribosome profiling data reported by [Guo14 ].
Socorro Gama-Castro on Wed Nov 8, 2006:
The start site of the cutC gene was originally assigned solely on the basis of sequence considerations [Blattner97 , Sawers89 ]. However, it was changed because [Gupta95 ] attested that the real start site is actually located 306 bp downstream. The demonstration is based on identification of both a plausible ribosome binding site and one promoter at an appropriate distance from the new start site. The promoter was identified using primer extension analysis [Dartigalongue01 ].
