A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Three genes called rocD, rocE and rocF were found near the rocR gene in B. subtilis. The product of rocD is similar to eukaryotic ornithine aminotransferases. The product of rocE shares similarity with the product of B. subtilis rocC and with the product of E. coli lysP. The rocE gene may encode an arginine permease. The rocF gene encodes a polypeptide similar to several arginases. Heterologous expression in E. coli indicated that rocD encodes an ornithine aminotransferase and that rocF encodes an arginase. Arginine utilization was abolished in both rocD and rocF mutants of B. subtilis confirming the role of these genes in arginine catabolism. The rocDEF genes form an operon transcribed from a -12, -24 promoter almost identical to the -12, -24 promoter of the rocABC operon. The expression of the rocDEF operon was induced by the presence of arginine, ornithine or proline in the growth medium and depended on the presence of the sigma factor SigL. Transcription of this operon was also abolished in a B. subtilis strain containing a null mutation in the regulatory gene rocR. Two tandemly repeated upstream activating sequences very similar to those previously identified in the rocABC system were found centered at positions -120 and -70, respectively, upstream from the transcription start site of rocDEF. Deletion analysis showed that at least one upstream activating sequence is involved in the expression of the rocDEF operon. These sequences are probably the target of RocR. Analysis of a rocR’-‘lacZ fusion strain showed that the expression of rocR is not induced by arginine and is negatively autoregulated.
