The interaction of the purified PrfA transcription factor with the regulatory sequences located upstream of the PrfA-dependent listeriolysin (hly) and internalin (inlA) genes was studied in the presence and in the absence of Paf (PrfA-activating factor)-containing extracts. It is shown that PrfA protein is able to bind, independently of additional factors, to a 109bp DNA fragment including the entire hly promoter sequence with the anticipated PrfA binding site ('PrfA-box'). PrfA alone, but not… CONTINUE READING
