Abstract In Bacillus cereus the catabolite control protein CcpA was shown to be involved in optimizing the efficiency of glucose catabolism by activating genes encoding glycolytic enzymes including a non-phosphorylating glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase that mediates conversion of D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate to 3-phospho-D-glycerate in one single step, and by repressing genes encoding the citric acid cycle and gluconeogenic enzymes. Two B. cereus-specific CcpA-regulated operons were identified, encoding enzymes involved in the catabolism of fuculose/arabinose and aspartate. In addition, a genome search using the CRE-site consensus predicted the B. cereus CcpA regulon to include 10 PTS-system gene clusters as well as genes coding for overflow metabolic enzymes leading to acetoin and acetate. Notably, catabolite repression of the genes encoding non-hemolytic enterotoxin (Nhe) and hemolytic (Hbl) enterotoxin appeared CcpA-dependent, and for the corresponding enterotoxin operons, putative CRE-sites were identified. This points to metabolic control of enterotoxin gene expression and suggests that CcpA-mediated glucose sensing provides an additional mode of control to PlcR activated expression of nhe and hbl genes in B. cereus.
