The PhoPQ two-component system regulates virulence factors in Erwinia chrysanthemi, a pectinolytic enterobacterium that causes soft rot in several plant species. We characterized the effect of a mutation in phoQ, the gene encoding the sensor kinase PhoQ of the PhoPQ two-component regulatory system, on the global transcriptional profile of E. chrysanthemi using cDNA microarrays and further confirmed our results by quantitative reverse transcription-PCR analysis. Our results indicate that a… CONTINUE READING
