    The protein

    Catalyzed reaction/ biological activity

  • D-mannitol + Nπ-phospho-L-histidyl-[protein] --> D-mannitol 1-phosphate + L-histidyl-[protein] (according to UniProt)
  • Protein family

  • [SW|PRD-containing transcription factors]
  • [SW|Domains]

  • N-terminal DNA-binding domains, two [SW|PTS]-regulation domains (PRD1 aa 195-300 and PRD2 aa 305-410), EIIB (Gat)-like domain, EIIA (Mtl)-like domain
  • [SW|PTS EIIB domain] type-2 (aa 413-502) (according to UniProt)
  • [SW|PTS EIIA domain] type-2 (aa 536-683) (according to UniProt)
  • Modification

  • phosphorylated on His-342 and/or His-399 by [protein|29B793660E4D30C0656248F3EF403FEF76FB9025|PtsH] [Pubmed|20444094]
  • phosphorylation on His-599 by [protein|5291FEF41CA547223EDF9EBAFA38D3EE550ED3F3|MtlA] [Pubmed|20444094]
  • phosphorylation on Cys-419 by [protein|EE4A4336E25F5DCAC89214F55CDE203AB47AA249|MtlF] [Pubmed|20444094]
  • Effectors of protein activity

  • activity is stimulated by [protein|29B793660E4D30C0656248F3EF403FEF76FB9025|PtsH]-dependent phosphorylation in PRD2 (mechnism of carbon catabolite repression) [Pubmed|20444094]
  • activity is inhibited by [protein|EE4A4336E25F5DCAC89214F55CDE203AB47AA249|MtlF]-dependent phosphorylation in the EIIB(Gat)-like domain on Cys-419 (this prevents activity in the absence of mannitol and allows induction in presence of mannitol) [Pubmed|20444094]
  • [SW|Localization]

  • upon interaction with non-phosphorylated [protein|5291FEF41CA547223EDF9EBAFA38D3EE550ED3F3|MtlA], the active [protein|1CEDC98C9EDD8F3DEA0AF4B2104DA1BF86E688C2|MtlR] localizes to the membrane [Pubmed|23279188]
