Starvation-inducible loci of Salmonella typhimurium: regulation and roles in starvation-survival.


Four starvation-inducible loci (stiA, stiB, stiC, and stiE) of Salmonella typhimurium have been extensively characterized as to their genetic and physiologic regulation, and their roles in survival during prolonged simultaneous phosphate (P)-, carbon (C)- and nitrogen (N)-starvation (PCN-starvation). Strains of S. typhimurium LT-2, isogenic with the… (More)
