LITERATURE
araD deletion mutants are unable to grow on L-arabinose, although these mutants grew on D-glucose with the same specific growth rate as the wild-type strain
levels of expression of araD is more than 43fold higher when the wild-type strain is grown on L-arabinose than when it is grown on D-glucose, significantly higher levels of expression of the gene is also observed for wild-type cells grown on L-arabinose plus D-glucose
