The gram-positive soil bacterium Bacillus subtilis often faces increases in the salinity in its natural habitats. A transcriptional profiling approach was utilized to investigate both the initial reaction to a sudden increase in salinity elicited by the addition of 0.4 M NaCl and the cellular adaptation reactions to prolonged growth at high salinity (1.2 M(More)
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 plant-pathogenic bacterium Pseudomonas syringae pv. glycinea PG4180.N9 synthesizes high levels of the polyketide phytotoxin coronatine (COR) at 18 degrees C, whereas no detectable toxin is produced at 28 degrees C. Previously, we reported that the temperature-sensitive activation of three promoters within the COR biosynthetic gene cluster might explain(More)
Pseudomonas syringae pv. glycinea PG4180 causes bacterial blight of soybean and produces the phytotoxin coronatine (COR) in a temperature-dependent manner. COR consists of a polyketide, coronafacic acid (CFA), and an amino acid derivative, coronamic acid, and is produced optimally at 18 degrees C whereas no detectable synthesis occurs at 28 degrees C. We(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)
