Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Polypeptide: entericidin B



Gene: ecnB Accession Numbers: G0-9562 (EcoCyc), b4411, ECK4143

Synonyms: yjeU

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Component of: entericidin toxin-antitoxin complex (extended summary available)

Summary:
EcnAB form a linked toxin-antitoxin "addiction module" which functions to regulate programmed bacterial cell death under high osmolarity conditions. The entericidin A lipoprotein (EcnA) functions as an antidote to the bacteriolytic entericidin B lipoprotein [Bishop98a].

Locations: inner membrane

Map Position: [4,374,576 -> 4,374,722] (94.29 centisomes)
Length: 147 bp / 48 aa

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 4.81 kD (from nucleotide sequence)

Subunit of: entericidin toxin-antitoxin complex

Subunit composition of entericidin toxin-antitoxin complex = [EcnB][EcnA]

         entericidin A, antidote to lipoprotein entericidin B = EcnA (summary available)

Summary:
The entericidin locus of Escherichia coli encodes tandem paralagous genes (ecnAB) which express two small cell-membrane associated lipoproteins [Bishop98a]: EcnA and EcnB. EcnAB form a linked toxin-antitoxin "addiction module" which functions to regulate programmed bacterial cell death under high osmolarity conditions. The entericidin A lipoprotein (EcnA) functions as an antidote to the bacteriolytic entericidin B lipoprotein [Bishop98a]. Subcloning the ecnAB locus into an inducible plasmid vector resulted in a stationary-phase bacteriolysis phenotype which was shown to be governed by an osmotically active sigma-S promoter [Bishop98a]. The rate of stationary-phase bacteriolysis was highest when ecnB was expressed independently of ecnA whereas stationary-phase bacteriolysis was suppressed when ecnA was expressed in cis to ecnB, suggesting that EcnA could serve as an antidote to the bacteriolytic action of EcnB [Bishop98a]. Taken together, the experimental results indicate that the chromosomal entericidin locus could regulate programmed bacterial cell death if a low rate of bacteriolysis supports the overall well-being of a healthy sub-population.
