YncE promoter region

Promoter from E. coli that controls the YncE 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 promoter allows you to have an iron-sensitive behaviour. In fact, in the presence of iron, the YncE promoter region decreases the expression of the downstream gene.
