The catabolite control protein CcpA is a pleiotropic transcription factor that mediates the global transcriptional response to rapidly catabolizable carbohydrates such as glucose in Gram-positive bacteria from the Firmicutes phylum. CcpA belong to the LacI protein family and controls its target genes either positively or negtively, depending on the position of CcpA-binding sites (or Catabolite Responsive Elements, CRE) in the promoter regions of its target genes. The CcpA regulons comprise genes involved in sugar uptake and catabolism, fermentation, amino acid metabolism, suggetsing the role of CcpA as a link between carbon and nitrogen metabolic pathways. more
