Analysis of the major domains of the F fertility inhibition protein, FinO


The mechanism of fertility inhibition of conjugation by the F plasmid depends on the presence of both the FinO protein and an antisense RNA, FinP, which together control the expression of the positive regulator of the transfer operon TraJ. FinO both prevents the degradation of FinP, allowing its intracellular concentration to rise, and promotes duplex… (More)
