The alternative sigma factor sigmaS, mainly active in stationary phase of growth, recognizes in vitro a -10 promoter sequence almost identical to the one for the main sigma factor, sigma70, thus raising the problem of how specific promoter recognition by sigmaS-RNA polymerase (EsigmaS) is achieved in vivo. We investigated the promoter features involved in… CONTINUE READING
