The SoxR protein of Escherichia coli responds to redox signals by activating the transcription of soxS, which encodes another transcription activator that directly stimulates oxidative stress genes. In contrast, Pseudomonas aeruginosa has an open reading frame (ORF) encoding a putative protein homologous to E. coli SoxR, but not to SoxS. Instead of a soxS homolog, ORFs encoding an unknown hypothetical protein and soxR are arranged divergently with their 5' ends separated by a 78 bp region… CONTINUE READING
