Mycobacterium tuberculosis rrn promoters: differential usage and growth rate-dependent control.

Abstract

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a slow-growing pathogen and is characterized by a low content of RNA per unit of DNA. rRNAs represent a major proportion of the total RNA pool, and the entire requirement for rRNA is met by transcription from a single rrn operon that is driven by two promoters, P1 and P3. This study attempted to analyze the specific role of the… (More)
