Structural and mutational studies establish the C-terminal domain of AllR(GclR) as the glyoxylate-binding domain (Walker, 2006). AllR(GclR) and IclR can bind to the same DNA sequence so IclR binds to the AllR(GclR) binding site at the gcl promoter but a deletion of IclR has no effect on gcl transcription, implying other factor(s) may be involved (Walker, 2006).
