BigR, a transcriptional repressor from plant-associated bacteria, regulates an operon implicated in biofilm growth.

Abstract

Xylella fastidiosa is a plant pathogen that colonizes the xylem vessels, causing vascular occlusion due to bacterial biofilm growth. However, little is known about the molecular mechanisms driving biofilm formation in Xylella-plant interactions. Here we show that BigR (for "biofilm growth-associated repressor") is a novel helix-turn-helix repressor that… (More)
