We reported previously that the synthesis of specific proteins such as OppA, Cya, and RpoS (sigma(38)), which are important for cell growth and viability, is stimulated by polyamines at the level of translation. In this study we found that the synthesis of FecI and Fis was also stimulated by polyamines at the level of translation. The FecI and Fis proteins enhance the expression of mRNAs that are involved in iron uptake and energy metabolism and the expression of rRNA and some tRNAs. The Shine… CONTINUE READING
