Abstract

The gene, which is chromosomally located in a gene cluster involved in NAD biosynthesis, negatively regulates expression of the cluster genes, i.e. , , and itself. Although encodes a member of the recently identified NrtR family of transcriptional regulators, whether or not the NdnR protein directly regulates these NAD biosynthesis genes remains to be verified. Here, two NdnR binding sites in the promoter region of the operon in were confirmed by DNA binding assay and analysis of expression of the chromosomally integrated promoter– reporter fusion. Electrophoretic mobility shift assay revealed that the NdnR protein binds to the 5′-upstream region of , and that the binding is significantly enhanced by NAD. Mutation in two 21 bp NdnR binding motifs in the promoter region inhibited the binding of NdnR . The mutation also enhanced the promoter activity in cells cultured in the presence of nicotinate, which is utilized in NAD biosynthesis, resulting in the loss of the repression in response to an exogenous NAD precursor; this is consistent with the effect of deletion of reported in our previous study. These results indicate that NAD acts as a co-repressor for the NdnR protein that directly regulates the operon involved in NAD biosynthesis; the NAD–NdnR regulatory system likely plays an important role in the control of NAD homeostasis in .
