Gene_nameExperimentally Verified Resistance Gene Information Predicted Resistance Gene Information
  • BacMet ID: BAC0561
  • Code for: Regulator
  • Family: Contains 1 HTH marR-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: Multiple antibiotic resistance protein MarR; Repressor of the marRAB operon which is involved in the activation of both antibiotic resistance and oxidative stress genes. Binds to the marO operator/promoter site. Overexpression of MarR decreases organic solvent tolerance in E. coli. High copy number of MarA and MarR also increases the tolerance level of bacteria to organic solvents.
  • Length (amino acid): 144
  • Reference: Asako et al. 1997; Pubmed- 9097440
