Gene regulation in Borrelia burgdorferi.

  title={Gene regulation in Borrelia burgdorferi.},
  author={Delphine Samuels},
  journal={Annual review of microbiology},
Borrelia burgdorferi, the spirochete that causes Lyme disease, is maintained in nature via an enzootic cycle that comprises a tick vector and a vertebrate host. Transmission from the tick to the mammal, acquisition from the mammal back to the tick, and adaptation to the two disparate environments require sensing signals and responding by regulating programs of gene expression. The molecular mechanisms utilized to effect these lifestyle changes have begun to be elucidated and feature an… CONTINUE READING
