Gene_nameExperimentally Verified Resistance Gene Information Predicted Resistance Gene Information
  • BacMet ID: BAC0560
  • Code for: Regulator
  • Family: Contains 1 HTH araC/xylS-type DNA-binding domain
  • Sequence: 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
  • Reference: Asako et al. 1997; Pubmed- 9097440
