Conserved function and regulation ofσ 32 homologues in Gram-negative bacteria


The heat shock response inEscherichia coli and related bacteria is primarily mediated byσ 32 or its homologue (RpoH protein) specifically required for transcription of heat shock genes encoding molecular chaperones and proteases. Extensive work inE. coli revealed some of the mechanisms controlling the cellular level and activity ofσ 32 during the heat shock… (More)
