Hfq and Hfq-dependent small RNAs are major contributors to multicellular development in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium.

Abstract

The RNA chaperone Hfq and its associated small RNAs (sRNAs) regulate a variety of phenotypes in bacteria. In this work, we show that Hfq is a master regulator of biofilm formation in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium. Hfq and two Hfq-dependent sRNAs (ArcZ and SdsR) are required for rdar morphotype expression in S. typhimurium. Hfq controls rdar… (More)
