The icsP promoter of Shigella spp. is repressed by H-NS and derepressed by VirB. Here, we show that an inverted repeat located between positions -1144 and -1130 relative to the icsP transcription start site is necessary for VirB-dependent derepression. The atypical location of this cis-acting site is discussed.
