The transcriptional organization of the genes in the extended fructose-PTS cluster of C. glutamicum. A) The extended fructose-PTS gene cluster as well as its transcriptional elements are depicted. Gene overlapping RT-PCR products are indicated by black bars and numbered. Transcriptional terminators predicted by TransTerm  are denoted as stem loop structures. Positions of the transcription start sites are indicated by arrows. B) The detailed sequences for the promoters P
, and P
. Transcription starts (+1), the distances to the translation start (in parentheses), and the start codons (underlined) are shown. The deduced-10 and -35 promoter regions are highlighted by dark and light grey boxes, respectively.
