    Phenotypes of a mutant

  • no phenotype for the single mutant, the triple ''[gene|210C83EBEBD3DE4946BC511E0249D0032A7CE3D0|bcaP] [gene|8BB8BDA602CC26B0A9E8C22666F0EC539306CF39|brnQ] [gene|75A874F0C344E8404BE39C32EFF59CE562193640|braB]'' mutant is strongly impaired in the transport of isoleucine and valine at low concentrations [Pubmed|25645558]
  • The protein

    Catalyzed reaction/ biological activity

  • high affinity uptake of isoleucine and valine [Pubmed|25645558]
  • Protein family

  • branched chain amino acid transporter family (together with [protein|8BB8BDA602CC26B0A9E8C22666F0EC539306CF39|BrnQ]) (according to UniProt)
  • Paralogous protein(s)

  • [protein|8BB8BDA602CC26B0A9E8C22666F0EC539306CF39|BrnQ]

  • regulation

  • induced in the absence of branched-chain amino acids ([SW|CodY], [SW|ScoC]) [Pubmed|26473603]
  • additional information

  • note that [SW|CodY] represses the expression of ''[protein|search|scoC]'', therefore ''[protein|search|braB]'' expression is increased at intermediate levels of [SW|CodY] activity [Pubmed|26473603]
