The multiple-sugar metabolism (msm) gene cluster of Streptococcus mutans is transcribed as a single operon.


PMID 8764489

Abstract

The multiple-sugar metabolism (msm) locus of Streptococcus mutans constitutes a non-PTS sugar uptake system responsible for the transport and utilization of raffinose, melibiose and isomaltotrioses. While previous studies have used polar mutations to suggest that these genes are co-transcribed, there has not been evidence to support this. In this report we present direct evidence that the msm genes can be transcribed as a single operon.
