    ..Transport via the MgtB system was very temperature sensitive; Mg2+ was transported at 37 degrees C but not at 20 degrees C. The MgtA and the MgtB transport systems were found to be regulated by the extracellular concentration of Mg2+. ..

    ..Nonetheless, the singular sequence and apparent structure of the CorA and MgtE transport proteins, the complex regulation of MgtA, MgtB and MgtC and their involvement in pathogenesis suggests that further study will be rewarding. ..

    ..Thus, we concluded that the phoPQ, mgrB, mgtA, hemL, nagA, rstAB, slyB, vboR, and yrbL genes make up the Mg(2+) stimulon in E. coli...
