Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Polypeptide: predicted transporter



Gene: ygaX Accession Numbers: G7403 (EcoCyc), b2680, ECK2674

Synonyms: ygaY

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Summary:
ygaX and ygaY appear to be two segments of a gene encoding an uncharacterised permease of the major facilitator superfamily (MFS) of transporters [Pao98]. Based on sequence similarity, it may function as a proton-driven metabolite uptake system. The ygaX/ygaY gene may be nonfunctional due to a frameshift error. ygaY was shown to be induced by osmotic upshift [Weber02]. ygaX transcription was increased in a relA background by 4-azaleucine [Sabina03]. It also clustered with chemotaxis, flagellum, and fimbria genes in increased expression after long-term adaptation to propionate and acetate [Polen03].
