sigma factors constitute a large family of bacterial transcriptional regulators that direct transcription in response to various stresses and have different mechanisms of signal integration. Writing in a recent issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, Francez-Charlot and colleagues describe a novel mechanism of regulation of an ECF… CONTINUE READING
