Deinococcus radiodurans shows extraordinary tolerance to DNA damage, and exhibits differential gene expression and protein recycling. A putative response regulator, the DRB0091 (RadR) ORF, was identified from a pool of DNA-binding proteins induced in response to gamma radiation in this bacterium. radR is located upstream of drB0090, which encodes a putative… CONTINUE READING
