The effect of nitrogen regulation on the level of transcriptional control has been investigated in a variety of bacteria, such as Bacillus subtilis, Corynebacterium glutamicum, Escherichia coli, and Streptomyces coelicolor; however, until now there have been no data for mycobacteria. In this study, we found that the OmpR-type regulator protein GlnR controls nitrogen-dependent transcription regulation in Mycobacterium smegmatis. Based on RNA hybridization experiments with a wild-type strain and… CONTINUE READING
