Influence of the regulatory protein RsmA on cellular functions in Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1, as revealed by transcriptome analysis.
RsmA is a posttranscriptional regulatory protein in Pseudomonas aeruginosa that works in tandem with a small non-coding regulatory RNA molecule, RsmB (RsmZ), to regulate the expression of severalExpand
