Small regulatory RNAs (sRNAs) are well known to command bacterial protein synthesis by modulating the translation and decay of target mRNAs. Most sRNAs are specifically regulated by a cognate transcription factor under certain growth or stress conditions. Investigations of the conserved Hfq-dependent MicM sRNA in Escherichia coli (article by Poul Valentin-Hansen and colleagues in this issue of Molecular Microbiology) and in Salmonella have unravelled a novel type of gene regulation in which the… CONTINUE READING
