    Phenotypes of a mutant

  • The function of this protein is unknown. However, certain mutant forms are able to activate expression of the ''[gene|44DF1B7E476AD58B3CCC39300FFE0132D0D32AD0|gltA]-[gene|AA07CC52B2DD48ACC9D3375E9D531CB1ACBE485A|gltB]'' operon (and thus to replace the cognate activator protein [protein|87BCAE725B02860156D50E1783F6DB68510C811E|GltC])
