    Phenotypes of a mutant

  • no growth with glucose and ammonium as single sources of carbon and nitrogen, respectively (due to [protein|CE542AE1A32CCD1ABB259E6159F7A37A8078E189|FsrA]-mediated repression of the ''[gene|44DF1B7E476AD58B3CCC39300FFE0132D0D32AD0|gltA]-[gene|AA07CC52B2DD48ACC9D3375E9D531CB1ACBE485A|gltB]'' operon) [Pubmed|22389480]
