The soil bacterium Bacillus subtilis frequently encounters a reduction in temperature in its natural habitats. Here, a combined transcriptomic and proteomic approach has been used to analyse the adaptational responses of B. subtilis to low temperature. Propagation of B. subtilis in minimal medium at 15 degrees C triggered the induction of 279 genes and the(More)
The phytopathogen Pseudomonas syringae produces the phytotoxin coronatine (COR) as a major virulence factor. COR and its precursor, coronafacic acid, function as molecular mimics of the plant signaling molecule jasmonate. A 32.8-kb plasmid-borne gene cluster mediates COR biosynthesis, which is optimal at 18 degrees C and non-detectable at 28 degrees C, the(More)
