Lsr2 is a small, basic protein present in Mycobacterium and related actinomycetes. Our previous in vitro biochemical studies showed that Lsr2 is a DNA-bridging protein, a property shared by H-NS-like proteins in gram-negative bacteria. Here we present in vivo evidence based on genetic complementation experiments that Lsr2 is a functional analog of H-NS, the(More)
We have recently concluded that a Listeria monocytogenes 86 kDa immunogenic surface protein, IspC, is a cell wall-anchored peptidoglycan hydrolase (autolysin), capable of degrading the cell wall peptidoglycan of the bacterium itself. To determine if this enzyme has any biological functions and/or plays a role in virulence, we in-frame-deleted the ispC gene(More)
