BacMet ID: BAC0560Code for: Regulator
Family: Contains 1 HTH araC/xylS-type DNA-binding domainSequence: FASTA
Cross-database IDs: Link
Organism: Escherichia coli (strain K12)Location: Chromosome
Compound: Cyclohexane [class: Cycloalkane], Diphenyl Ether [class: Phenyl], n-hexane [class: Alkane]Description: A transcriptional activator (MarA) of genes involved in the multiple antibiotic resistance (Mar) phenotype. It can also activate genes such as sodA, zwf and micF. Organic solvent tolerance and antibiotic resistance increased by overexpression of marA in Escherichia coli. High copy number of MarA and MarR also increases the tolerance level of bacteria to organic solvents.
Length (amino acid): 127
