Involvement of alkylhydroxybenzenes, microbial autoregulators, in controlling the expression of stress regulons

Alkylhydroxybenzenes (AHB) were found to control the activation of protective functions of microorganisms by inducing stress gene expression and increasing the frequency of the intrapopulation phase transitions which are responsible for the phenotypic variability of bacteria. We established the dependence of the regulatory effects of AHB on their structure… CONTINUE READING
