We describe the identification of the Yersinia enterocolitica rpoE gene, which encodes the alternative sigma factor sigmaE, and the divergently transcribed nadB gene, as genes that are expressed during infection of mice. As in Escherichia coli, rpoE of Y. enterocolitica is essential for growth and its expression is autoregulated. Despite the similarities of the rpoE operons of Y. enterocolitica and E. coli, there are considerable differences in the response to extracytoplasmic stress. Unlike in… CONTINUE READING
