    ..These results establish a locus affecting function of enzyme IIA/IIB that maps distant from ptsM, the probable structural gene for enzyme IIB. ..

    ..Thus, it is possible that an ancestral antitoxin gene evolved into the present toxin gene (symE) whose translation is repressed by an RNA antitoxin (SymR). ..

    ..The chromosome-encoded mRNAs are poorly translated in vitro, thus yielding an explanation for the lacking phenotype. These observations suggest that the chromosomal hok-like genes may be induced by an as yet unknown signal. ..
