Evolution of a Bacterial Regulon Controlling Virulence and Mg2+ Homeostasis

Abstract

Related organisms typically rely on orthologous regulatory proteins to respond to a given signal. However, the extent to which (or even if) the targets of shared regulatory proteins are maintained across species has remained largely unknown. This question is of particular significance in bacteria due to the widespread effects of horizontal gene transfer… (More)
