Promoter from E. coli that controls the FepA gene, involved in iron uptake and iron sensitive.
FUR (Ferric Uptake Regulation) is a transcriptional repressor of genes involved in iron homeostasis. In presence of iron, the FUR protein changes its conformation and dimerizes. This leads to the binding to the DNA on a FUR binding site, thus inhibiting the mRNA transcription.
Why would you use this part?
This part allows the characterization of the FepA promoter region thanks to the sfGFP downstream.
