The transcriptional regulation of the stpA gene, encoding the Escherichia coli H-NS-like protein StpA, has been studied as a function of a variety of environmental conditions, and its response to trans-acting factors has been characterized. Chromosomally located stpA is expressed primarily from a promoter immediately upstream of the gene which is severely repressed by the homologous nucleoid-associated protein H-NS. However, we show here that even in a strain containing functional H-NS, stpA is… CONTINUE READING
