Date of Defense 1997-01-15 Availability restricted AbstractAerobic sn-glycero13-phosphate (glycerol-P) dehydrogenase is a cytoplasmic membrane-associated respiratory enzyme encoded by the g/pD gene of Escherichia coli. The divergently transcribed glpACB and glpTQ operons encode the subunits of the
anaerobic glycerol-P dehydrogenase, glycerol-P transporter, and glycerophosphodiesterase, respectively.
The glpD operon is controlled by cooperative binding of glp repressor (GlpR) to tandem operators that cover the -10 promoter element and 30 bp downstream of the transcription start site. The glpACB-glpTQ operons operons are controlled by GlpR binding to operators that overlap the glpA promoter elements. In this study, two additional operators were identified within the glpD structural gene, and three additional operators were identified within the glpT structural gene.
