    Phenotypes of a mutant

  • inactivation of ''[gene|FF34DC303E8A7C9FAA205A6C2924961963B14EB1|mntR]'' reduces sporulation efficiency to 8.9% that of wild type cells [Pubmed|26735940]
  • highly sensitive to Mn(II) intoxication [Pubmed|27748968]
  • The protein

    [SW|Cofactors]

  • Mn(2+) acts as co-repressor (according to [Pubmed|20408793])
  • Structure

  • [PDB|2F5D] (complex with manganese), [PDB|2HYG] (apo-form)
