Description

This entry represents the transcription factor FapR, which is involved in the regulation of membrane lipid biosynthesis by repressing genes involved in fatty acid and phospholipid metabolism [PMID: 17919287]. FapR controls the expression of many genes involved in fatty acid and phospholipid metabolism (the fap regulon) [PMID: 12737802].
