The CgrA and CgrC proteins form a complex that positively regulates cupA fimbrial gene expression in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Abstract

The CgrA and CgrC proteins of Pseudomonas aeruginosa are coregulators that are required for the phase-variable expression of the cupA fimbrial genes. Neither CgrA nor CgrC resembles a classical transcription regulator, and precisely how these proteins exert their regulatory effects on cupA gene expression is poorly understood. Here, we show that CgrA and… (More)
