Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a gram-negative bacterium that causes serious infections in immunocompromised individuals and cystic fibrosis patients. This opportunistic pathogen controls many of its virulence factors and cellular functions through the activity of three cell-to-cell signals, N-(3-oxododecanoyl)-L-homoserine lactone, N-butyryl-L-homoserine(More)
A cyclic version of the Entner-Doudoroff pathway is used by Pseudomonas aeruginosa to metabolize carbohydrates. Genes encoding the enzymes that catabolize intracellular glucose to pyruvate and glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate are coordinately regulated, clustered at 39 min on the chromosome, and collectively form the hex regulon. Within the hex cluster is an open(More)
