    The protein

    Catalyzed reaction/ biological activity

  • transport and phosphorylation of glucose, receives a phosphate from [protein|29B793660E4D30C0656248F3EF403FEF76FB9025|HPr]]] at the IIA domain (His-620), the phosphate group is then transferred to the IIB domain (Cys-461) an finally to the incoming glucose. In the absence of glucose, PtsG phosphorylates and thereby inactivates the transcriptional antiterminator [protein|BC0DF593AE969F1DBC5E9E2BACF1C00BE4FEE449|GlcT].
