Polymorphism and selection of rpoS in pathogenic Escherichia coli

Abstract

Though RpoS is important for survival of pathogenic Escherichia coli in natural environments, polymorphism in the rpoS gene is common. However, the causes of this polymorphism and consequential physiological effects on gene expression in pathogenic strains are not fully understood. In this study, we found that growth on non-preferred carbon sources can… (More)
