Crucial roles of both flanking sequences in silencing of the hilA promoter in Salmonella enterica.


The hilA gene on the Salmonella enterica pathogenicity island-1 encodes the key transcriptional regulator of host cell invasion. Transcription of hilA is regulated by numerous physiological signals, including repression under low osmolarity conditions. To investigate the osmotic control of hilA transcription, promoter truncations that remove sequences… (More)
