BacMet ID: BAC0561Code for: Regulator
Family: Contains 1 HTH marR-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: 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
