    ..The 5.6-kbp repeat is a class II transposon carrying a TnpA transposase, a truncated form of the recombinase TnpR, and a terminal inverted repeat of 38 bp. The truncated TnpR is encoded by an IS3-interrupted tnpR gene...

    J Bacteriol 180:491-7. 1998
    ..However, when cells were grown in liquid media with much agitation, CcpA alone mediated catabolite repression. Like CcpA, CcpB appears to exert its catabolite-repressing effect by a mechanism dependent on the presence of HPr(Ser-P)...
