Gene regulation in prokaryotes by subcellular relocalization of transcription factors.

Abstract

Traditionally, prokaryotic transcriptional regulators were thought to be controlled by the binding of low-molecular-weight effector molecules--inducers and co-repressors. Here, we describe two examples of a novel mode of regulator control. In this mode, transcription factors "shuttle" between their operator sites on the chromosome and the inner face of the… (More)
