Induced by fructuronate, but not gluconate; induced by glucuronate via its conversion to fructuronate. Required for growth on fructuronate. UxuR regulon. OmrB, and possibly OmrA, regulates gntP (Tjaden, 2006). IT (Ion Transporter) superfamily (Prakash, 2003). ST(3) structural class based on hydropathy profile (Lolkema, 2003).
