Comparative computer-assisted analysis was used to study putative GlpR-regulons responsible for metabolism of glycerol and glycerol-3-phosphate in genomes of α-, β-, and γ-proteobacteria. New palindromic GlpR-binding signals were identified in γ-proteobacteria; consensus sequences being TGTTCGATAACGAACA for Enterobacteriaceae, wTTTTCGTATACGAAAAw for Pseudomonadaceae, and AATGCTCGATCGAGCATT for Vibrionaceae. The signals in α- and β-proteobacteria were also identified: they contained 3-4 direct TTTCGTT repeats separated by 3-4 nucleotide pairs.
