Gene yddG of Escherichia coli encoding the putative exporter of aromatic amino acids: Constitutive transcription and dependence of the expression on the cell growth rate

Gene yddG of Escherichia coli encoding the putative exporter of aromatic amino acids:... Gene yddG of Escherichia coli encodes a protein of the inner membrane. Data obtained earlier demonstrated that under conditions of aromatic amino acids overproduction YddG promotes their export from E. coli cells. In this work, a method of primer extension was used to localize the P yddG promoter, which corresponds to E. coli promoters recognized by RNA polymerase in complex with σ70 or σS subunits. By constructing a gene of the hybrid protein YddG’-LacZ at the intrinsic site of gene yddG location in the E. coli chromosome and analyzing the activity of β-galactosidase in cells growing on laboratory media LB and M9, the constitutive type of yddG expression at a low level was demonstrated (the activity was about 3 to 4% of the LacZ level under induction of the lac operon in E. coli wild-type cells). The expression of yddG had a twofold increase under conditions of retarded cell growth upon the stress caused by the high NaCl content (0.6 M) or by the presence of phenylalanine excess quantities (>1 mM) in the culture medium. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

Gene yddG of Escherichia coli encodes a protein of the inner membrane. Data obtained earlier demonstrated that under conditions of aromatic amino acids overproduction YddG promotes their export from E. coli cells. In this work, a method of primer extension was used to localize the P yddG promoter, which corresponds to E. coli promoters recognized by RNA polymerase in complex with σ70 or σS subunits. By constructing a gene of the hybrid protein YddG’-LacZ at the intrinsic site of gene yddG location in the E. coli chromosome and analyzing the activity of β-galactosidase in cells growing on laboratory media LB and M9, the constitutive type of yddG expression at a low level was demonstrated (the activity was about 3 to 4% of the LacZ level under induction of the lac operon in E. coli wild-type cells). The expression of yddG had a twofold increase under conditions of retarded cell growth upon the stress caused by the high NaCl content (0.6 M) or by the presence of phenylalanine excess quantities (>1 mM) in the culture medium.
