Mechanism of action of the Escherichia coli phage shock protein PspA in repression of the AAA family transcription factor PspF.

Abstract

The PspA protein, a negative regulator of the Escherichia coli phage shock psp operon, is produced when virulence factors are exported through secretins in many Gram-negative pathogenic bacteria and its homologue in plants, VIPP1, plays a critical role in thylakoid biogenesis, essential for photosynthesis. Activation of transcription by the enhancer… (More)
