Carbon storage regulator (IPR003751)

Short name: CsrA

Family relationships

None.

Description

The RNA-binding protein CsrA (carbon storage regulator) is a new kind of global regulator, which facilitates specific mRNA decay [PMID: 9211896]. CsrA is entirely contained within a globular complex of approximately 18 CsrA-H6 subunits and a single RNA, CsrB. CsrA binds to the CsrB RNA molecule to form the Csr regulatory system which has a strong negative regulatory effect on glycogen biosynthesis, glyconeogenesis and glycogen catabolism and a positive regulatory effect on glycolysis [PMID: 9211896].
