Mercuric ion, Hg(II), inactivates generalized transcription in the crenarchaeote Sulfolobus solfataricus. Metal challenge simultaneously derepresses transcription of mercuric reductase (merA) by interacting with the archaeal transcription factor aMerR. Northern blot and primer extension analyses identified two additional Hg(II)-inducible S. solfataricus genes, merH and merI (SSO2690), located on either side of merA. Transcription initiating upstream of merH at promoter merHp was metal inducible… CONTINUE READING
