All denitrifying bacteria can keep the steady-state concentrations of nitrite and nitric oxide (NO) below cytotoxic levels, controlling the expression of the denitrification gene clusters by redox signaling, mainly through transcriptional regulators belonging either to the DNR (dissimilative nitrate respiration regulator) or to the NnrR (nitrite and nitric oxide reductase regulator) subgroups of the FNR (fumarate and nitrate reductase regulatory protein)-CRP (cAMP receptor protein) superfamily… Expand
Fine-tuned regulation of the dissimilatory nitrite reductase gene by oxygen and nitric oxide in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
TLDR
Analysis of transcriptional activity by microarray and quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction revealed that nirS is transcribed under low oxygen conditions in an ANR-dependent manner, although the expression level was 10-fold lower than that of the DNR-dependent expression. Expand
The Pseudomonas aeruginosa DNR transcription factor: light and shade of nitric oxide-sensing mechanisms.
TLDR
Results indicate that DNR is a haem protein capable of discriminating between NO and CO (carbon monoxide), and on the basis of the available structural data, a suggested activation mechanism is discussed. Expand
The transcription factor DNR from Pseudomonas aeruginosa specifically requires nitric oxide and haem for the activation of a target promoter in Escherichia coli.
TLDR
It is shown, for the first time, that DNR is able to discriminate in vivo between different diatomic signal molecules, NO and CO, both ligands of the reduced haem iron in vitro, suggesting that D NR responds specifically to NO. Expand
Heme and nitric oxide binding by the transcriptional regulator DnrF from the marine bacterium Dinoroseobacter shibae increases napD promoter affinity
TLDR
DnrF selectively repressed nitrate reductase (nap) genes, preventing further NO formation and proposed a model for the DnrF-mediated NO stress response of this marine bacterium. Expand
A dramatic conformational rearrangement is necessary for the activation of DNR from Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Crystal structure of wild‐type DNR
TLDR
This article presents the crystallographic structure of the wild‐type dissimilative nitrate respiration regulator (DNR), a master regulator controlling expression of the denitrification machinery and a putative target for new therapeutic strategies. Expand
Unusual heme binding properties of the dissimilative nitrate respiration regulator, a bacterial nitric oxide sensor.
TLDR
Protein flexibility and dynamics is a key structural feature essential to explain the evolutionary success and adaptability of CRP-FNR, and may represent a common strategy employed by heme-based redox sensors, which presents features deeply different from those of canonical hemeproteins. Expand

TLDR
The properties of the enzymes that make and consume N2O, together with the accessory proteins that have roles in the assembly and maturation of those enzymes, are reviewed. Expand
Nitric oxide sensing and response in vibrio cholerae
TLDR
Data suggest that NnrS, a protein of previously unknown function, protects against the formation of NO-iron complexes, and it is found that hmpA and norR are important for survival during colonization of the mouse intestines in response to host-generated NO, whereas nnrS is dispensable. Expand
Contribution of the stringent response and Anr to anaerobic survival of Pseudomonads
In this study adaptation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas putida to changes in nutrient and oxygen availability was investigated. P. aeruginosa mutant strains unable to carry out theExpand
Distal–proximal crosstalk in the heme binding pocket of the NO sensor DNR
TLDR
The capability of DNR to deeply rearrange around the heme-iron as been here demonstrated by means of spectroscopic characterization of the H167A/H187A DNR double mutant, which shows unusual kinetics of binding of NO and CO. Expand

N-oxide sensing in Pseudomonas aeruginosa: expression and preliminary characterization of DNR, an FNR-CRP type transcriptional regulator.
TLDR
The aggregation state of the purified protein and its ability to bind hydrophobic compounds such as 8-anilino-1-naphthalenesulphonic acid are determined and the structural properties of the dissimilative nitrate respiration regulator are determined. Expand
Nitric Oxide Signaling and Transcriptional Control of Denitrification Genes in Pseudomonas stutzeri
TLDR
The data establish NO and DnrD as key elements in the regulatory network of denitrification in P. stutzeri and add to the previously identified nitrate-nitrite response mediated by the NarXL two-component system for the expression of respiratory nitrate reductase encoded by the narGHJI operon.

Transcriptional regulation of the nos genes for nitrous oxide reductase in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
TLDR
DNR, an FNR-related transcriptional regulator required for the expression of denitrification genes in P. aeruginosa, is necessary for the transcription of nosR, indicating that the motif is recognized by DNR. Expand
Cascade regulation of the two CRP/FNR‐related transcriptional regulators (ANR and DNR) and the denitrification enzymes in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
TLDR
It is found that the transcription of the dnr gene is under the control of ANR, an analogue of Escherichia coli FNR, and the expression of the denitrification system is controlled not directly by ANR but indirectly via DNR. Expand
Transcription factor NNR from Paracoccus denitrificans is a sensor of both nitric oxide and oxygen: isolation of nnr* alleles encoding effector-independent proteins and evidence for a haem-based sensing mechanism.
TLDR
Using regulated expression of the nnr gene in Escherichia coli, evidence has now been obtained to indicate that activation of NNR by NO does not require de novo synthesis of the NNR polypeptide, suggesting that NNR senses both molecules. Expand
Two‐pronged survival strategy for the major cystic fibrosis pathogen, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, lacking the capacity to degrade nitric oxide during anaerobic respiration
TLDR
Protection from NO gas, a toxic byproduct of anaerobic respiration in Pseudomonas aeruginosa, is mediated by nitric oxide (NO) reductase (NOR), the norCB gene product, and Electron paramagnetic resonance studies showed that HmgA and Hpd bound NO avidly, and helped protect the nor CB mutant in anaerilic biofilms.

Expression of the nir and nor genes for denitrification of Pseudomonas aeruginosa requires a novel CRP/FNR‐related transcriptional regulator, DNR, in addition to ANR
TLDR
This is the first finding that two CRP/FNR‐related regulators are involved in denitrification in one strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Expand
Effect of nitrogen oxides on expression of the nir and nor genes for denitrification in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
TLDR
Results suggest that the nirQ and norC promoters are regulated by the concentration of endogenous nitric oxide rather than that of nitrite. Expand

TLDR
This review describes the current state of understanding of regulatory systems that respond to NO, and an emerging trend is the predominance of iron proteins among the known physiological NO sensors. Expand
Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 H-NOX regulation of a histidine kinase by nitric oxide.
TLDR
Observations suggest that the S. oneidensis H-NOX and histidine kinase pair function as part of a novel two-component signaling pathway that is responsive to NO formation from higher nitrogen oxides used as electron acceptors when oxygen is low and thereby functioning as an environmental sensor.
