Antisense RNA that affects Rhodopseudomonas palustris quorum-sensing signal receptor expression.

Abstract

Quorum sensing in the bacterium Rhodopseudomonas palustris involves the RpaI signal synthase, which produces p-coumaroyl-homoserine lactone (pC-HSL) and RpaR, which is a pC-HSL-dependent transcriptional activator. There is also an antisense rpaR transcript (asrpaR) of unknown function. Recent RNAseq studies have revealed that bacterial antisense RNAs are… (More)
