During infections of the intestinal tract Yersinia pseudotuberculosis penetrates the epithelial cell layer through M-cells into the Peyer's patches. This early step in the infection process is primarily mediated by the outer membrane protein invasin. Expression of the invasin gene is activated by the MarR-type regulatory protein RovA in response to environmental conditions, including temperature and growth phase. In order to gain insight into the nature of the underlying control systems… CONTINUE READING
