Oleanolic and Ursolic Acids Influence Affect the Expression of the Cysteine Regulon and the Stress Response in Escherichia coli

Abstract

The pentacyclic triterpenoids, oleanolic, and ursolic acids, affect peptidoglycan metabolism, altering bacterial morphology, and inhibit the growth and survival of several bacterial species, including pathogenic ones. We investigated the effect of subinhibitory concentrations of these compounds on the expression of three operons from the E. coli cysteine… (More)
