Regulatory components, including integration host factor, CysB and H-NS, that influence pH responses in Escherichia coli.

Abstract

This review describes a range of pH responses. Some are only induced if relevant DNA is brought to an appropriately supercoiled configuration by DNA gyrase and bent by the action of, for example, integration host factor (IHF). Bending may allow transcription by bringing activators into juxtaposition with RNA polymerase, which is CysB-associated in several… (More)
