[Conservation of the regulatory elements implicated in the control of the rpsB-tsf operon expression in gamma-proteobacteria].


In eubacteria, the rpsB-tsf operon encodes two essential components of translational apparatus, ribosomal protein (r-protein) S2 and elongation factor Ts. Recently, we located the promoter region of the Escherichia coli rpsB-tsf operon and demonstrated that both rpsB and tsf genes are negatively regulated by r-protein S2 at the translational level. In this… (More)
