  • regulatory mechanism

  • [regulon|FMN-box|FMN-box]: transcription termination, via [SW|FMN-box] in the presence of FMN or FMNH2, this is counter-acted upon binding of [protein|3D32B6C1DC9CAC615B02E14EA846648C3B0E61D6|RibR], in [regulon|FMN-box|FMN-box]
  • regulation

  • expressed in the absence of FMN ([SW|FMN-box]) [Pubmed|15808508]
