The production of the bacterial DNA replication inhibitor Microcin B17 is induced as cultures enter stationary phase. Using S1 nuclease protection assays we have shown that this induction is the result of increased levels of transcription initiation from a promoter located upstream from mcbA, the structural gene for Microcin B17. Upstream from the start… CONTINUE READING
