The Pseudomonas aeruginosa oxidative stress regulator OxyR influences production of pyocyanin and rhamnolipids: protective role of pyocyanin.

Abstract

The LysR-type transcriptional regulator (LTTR) OxyR orchestrates the defence of the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa against reactive oxygen species. In previous work we also demonstrated that OxyR is needed for the utilization of the ferrisiderophore pyoverdine, stressing the importance of this regulator. Here, we show that an oxyR mutant is… (More)
