The Caulobacter crescentus che promoter region consists of two divergent promoters, directing expression of the major chemotaxis operon and a novel gene cagA (chemotaxis associated gene A). Analyses of start sites by primer extension and alignment of the divergent promoters revealed significant similarities between them at the -35 promoter region. Both mcpA and cagA are differentially expressed in the cell cycle, with maximal activation of transcription in predivisional cells. The main… CONTINUE READING
