摘要The transcription of amtB in Streptomyces coelicolor has been proposed to be counter-regulated by GlnR (a global regulator for nitrogen metabolism) and PhoP (a global regulator for phosphate metabolism). However, the GlnR-protected region, which was deduced to be two 22-bp GlnR binding boxes (gTnAc-n6-GaAAc-n6-GtnAC-n6-GAAAc-n6, abbreviated as a1-b1 and a2-b2), was separated from the PhoP-protected region in the promoter of amtB, leaving the mechanism for this regulation undefined. In this study, another 22-bp GlnR binding box, which consisted of a3-site-n6-b3-site (a3-b3) overlapping with the PhoP-binding sequences, was identified in the promoter region of amtB by a DNase I footprinting assay. An electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA) using purified recombinant GlnR and the synthetic amtB promoter fragments with the three GlnR binding boxes individually mutated demonstrated that every box was involved in GlnR binding in vitro. Further in vivo assays using the egfp reporter gene fused to various kinds of mutated promoter regions of amtB demonstrated that all of the three GlnR binding boxes were required for GlnR-mediated activation of amtB transcription under the nitrogen-limited condition. The results of EMSA using the amtB promoter with mixtures of recombinant His-tagged GlnR and Trx-His-S-tagged PhoP inferred that PhoP might compete against GlnR from binding at the a3-b3 site, attributable to the PhoP/GlnR counter-regulatory function subjected to further experimental proof.
