Gene Symbol: plnU
Description: membrane protein PlnU
Species: Lactobacillus plantarum WCFS1
- The gene encoding plantaricin A, a bacteriocin from Lactobacillus plantarum C11, is located on the same transcription unit as an agr-like regulatory systemD B Diep
Laboratory of Microbial Gene Technology, Agricultural University of Norway, As
Appl Environ Microbiol 60:160-6. 1994..The finding that plnABCD are transcribed from a common promoter suggests that the biological role played by the bacteriocin is somehow related to the regulatory function of the two-component system located on the same operon...
- Characterization of the locus responsible for the bacteriocin production in Lactobacillus plantarum C11D B Diep
Laboratory of Microbial Gene Technology, Department of Biotechnological Sciences, Agricultural University of Norway
J Bacteriol 178:4472-83. 1996..A conserved regulatory-like box encompassing two direct repeats was identified in the promoter regions of all five plantaricin A-induced operons. These repeats may serve as regulatory elements for gene expression...
- A bacteriocin-like peptide induces bacteriocin synthesis in Lactobacillus plantarum C11D B Diep
Department of Biotechnological Sciences, Agricultural University of Norway, As, Norway
Mol Microbiol 18:631-9. 1995..Neither synthetic nor expressed plantaricin A from the heterologous system possesses any bacteriocin activity, suggesting that plantaricin A is primarily an induction factor and not a bacteriocin as claimed earlier...
