Identifier, protein and gene names [?]

Identifier
TRPR
case <OC:Enterobacterales>
Protein name
RecName: Full=Trp operon repressor;
else
Protein name
RecName: Full=Trp operon repressor homolog;
end case
Gene name
trpR

Comments [?]

case <OC:Enterobacterales>
Function This protein is an aporepressor. When complexed with L-tryptophan it binds the operator region of the trp operon (5'-ACTAGT-'3') and prevents the initiation of transcription. The complex also regulates trp repressor biosynthesis by binding to its regulatory region.
else
Function This protein is an aporepressor. When complexed with L-tryptophan it binds the operator region of the trp operon and prevents the initiation of transcription.
end case
Subunit Homodimer.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the TrpR family.
