Growth-rate-dependent transcription initiation from the dam P2 promoter

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review

Transcription of the dam gene in Escherichia coli is dependent on growth rate. Using single-copy promoter::lacZYA fusions we found that of the five promoter regions which affect dam expression, only the P2 promoter shows growth-rate dependence. The determinants for growth-rate control must lie in the region -52 to +27 relative to the transcription start point.
