Curation notes

Experimental Process

A homolog for the lexA gene in this species was found from the sequence in Nostoc. PCC7120. EMSA was used to confirm binding.

Gene Regulation

Regulated genes for each binding site are displayed below. Gene regulation diagrams show binding sites, positively-regulated genes, negatively-regulated genes, both positively and negatively regulated genes, genes with unspecified type of regulation. For each indvidual site, experimental techniques used to determine the site are also given.
