FIGURE 5: Network position of purH suppressor mutations. Loss-of-function mutations that suppress the thiamine requirement of a purH mutant have a role in various aspects of central carbon metabolism. The cyaA gene encodes adenylate cyclase and its product (cAMP) is the effector of the CRP transcriptional regulator that modulates >100 genes [45]. The mtfA gene encodes the Mlc titration factor; Mlc is a global regulator of sugar metabolism. Both cAMP-CRP and MtfA are part of the PTS signal transduction pathway [46]. Fumarate dehydratase (fumAC) and glutamate dehydrogenase (gdhA) function in, or just peripheral to, the TCA cycle. Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (zwf) is the first enzyme of the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway.
