IscR controls iron-dependent biofilm formation in Escherichia coli by regulating type I fimbria expression.

Abstract

Biofilm formation is a complex developmental process regulated by multiple environmental signals. In addition to other nutrients, the transition metal iron can also regulate biofilm formation. Iron-dependent regulation of biofilm formation varies by bacterial species, and the exact regulatory pathways that control iron-dependent biofilm formation are often… (More)
