ActS-ActR proteins belong to a highly conserved family of two-component signal transduction systems involved in global regulation in the alpha-proteobacteria; they were first identified in Sinorhizobium medicae (previously Sinorhizobium meliloti) as essential for acid-tolerance. This paper reports on the identification of genes regulated by ActS and/or ActR in S. medicae. To do this, random gusA fusions were created in S. medicae to follow gene transcription in an actS chromosomal knockout… CONTINUE READING
