Global transcriptional analysis of the phosphate starvation response in Sinorhizobium meliloti strains 1021 and 2011

The global response to phosphate starvation was analysed at the transcriptional level in two closely related strains of Sinorhizobium meliloti, Rm1021 and Rm2011. The Pho regulon is known to be induced by PhoB under conditions of phosphate limitation. Ninety-eight genes were found to be significantly induced (more than three-fold) in a phoB -dependent… CONTINUE READING
