Transcriptional analysis of the flagellar regulon of Salmonella typhimurium.
In Salmonella typhimurium, nearly 50 genes are involved in flagellar formation and function and constitute at least 13 different operons. In this study, we examined the transcriptional interactionExpand

Ribosome rescue by Escherichia coli ArfA (YhdL) in the absence of trans-translation system.
Although SsrA(tmRNA)-mediated trans-translation is thought to maintain the translation capacity of bacterial cells by rescuing ribosomes stalled on messenger RNA lacking an in-frame stop codon,Expand

Abstract Expression of the flagellar master operon, flhD, is known to be affected by growth conditions and by mutations in a variety of genes. In the present work, the transcriptional control of theExpand

FliT acts as an anti-FlhD2C2 factor in the transcriptional control of the flagellar regulon in Salmonella enterica serovar typhimurium.
Flagellar operons are divided into three classes with respect to their transcriptional hierarchy in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium. The class 1 gene products FlhD and FlhC act together in anExpand

More than 50 genes are required for flagellar formation and function in Salmonella typhimurium. According to the cascade model of the flagellar regulon, the flagellar operons are divided into threeExpand

EAL domain protein YdiV acts as an anti-FlhD4C2 factor responsible for nutritional control of the flagellar regulon in Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium.
Flagellar operons are divided into three classes with respect to their transcriptional hierarchy in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium. The class 1 gene products FlhD and FlhC act together in anExpand

ArfA recruits release factor 2 to rescue stalled ribosomes by peptidyl-tRNA hydrolysis in Escherichia coli.
The ribosomes stalled at the end of non-stop mRNAs must be rescued for productive cycles of cellular protein synthesis. Escherichia coli possesses at least three independent mechanisms that resolveExpand

trans-translation-mediated tight regulation of the expression of the alternative ribosome-rescue factor ArfA in Escherichia coli.
Ribosomes translating mRNA without an in-frame stop codon (non-stop mRNA) stall at its 3' end. In eubacteria, such ribosomes are rescued by SsrA-mediated trans-translation. Recently, we have shownExpand

FliZ acts as a repressor of the ydiV gene, which encodes an anti-FlhD4C2 factor of the flagellar regulon in Salmonella enterica serovar typhimurium.
YdiV acts as an anti-FlhD4C2 factor, which negatively regulates the class 2 flagellar operons in poor medium in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium. On the other hand, one of the class 2Expand

Peptidoglycan-hydrolyzing activity of the FlgJ protein, essential for flagellar rod formation in Salmonella typhimurium.
Because the rod structure of the flagellar basal body crosses the inner membrane, the periplasmic space, and the outer membrane, its formation must involve hydrolysis of the peptidoglycan layer. SoExpand
