Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 RNA: FnrS small regulatory RNA



Gene: fnrS Accession Numbers: G0-10677 (EcoCyc), b4699, ECK4511

Synonyms: rydA

Superclasses: a regulatory RNA

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Summary:
FnrS is a small regulatory RNA that reprograms metabolism in response to anaerobiosis. Potential regulatory targets were identified by gene expression analysis and proteomic profiling, and selected targets were validated [Durand10, Boysen10]. Additional targets of FnrS have been identified by comparative genomics [Wright13].

Hfq interacts with and stabilizes FnrS; in an hfq mutant strain, the half life of FnrS is decreased 15-fold from 100 minutes in the wild-type background [Boysen10].

Expression of FnrS is occurs only under anaerobic growth conditions and is dependent on FNR [Durand10, Boysen10] and affected by ArcA and CRP [Durand10]. When the existence of FnrS (RydA) was first proposed, no expression could be detected on Northern blots [Wassarman01].

FnrS: "FNR-regulated sRNA" [Boysen10]

Map Position: [1,407,153 -> 1,407,271] (30.33 centisomes)
Length: 119 bp
