The global transcriptional regulator AppY stimulates expression of the anaerobically-induced energy metabolism operons hyaA-F and cbdABX-appA (Br√łndsted, 1996; Atlung, 1996; Atlung, 1997). appY expression is induced by phosphate starvation and stationary phase. AppY activates cbdABX-appA transcription as growth slows, and AppY either activates or repressses other genes during exponential or stationary phase.
