Unnamed Gene ID: 945022

Known also as: ECK1046; JW1048;

NCBI Gene ID: 945022
Species: Escherichia coli strain K-12 substr. MG1655

DinI inhibits RecA co-protease activity of UmuD, but not LexA. [More information is available at EcoGene: EG12670]. The dinI gene was first identified as a chromosomal locus containing a high affinity operator for the LexA repressor . [More information is available at EcoCyc: G6558].
