The interaction of the two transcriptional regulators RcsA and RcsB with a specific operator is a common mechanism in the activation of capsule biosynthesis in enteric bacteria. We describe RcsAB binding sites in the wza promoter of the operon for colanic acid biosynthesis in Escherichia coli K-12, in the galF promoter of the operon for K2 antigen biosynthesis in Klebsiella pneumoniae, and in the tviA (vipR) promoter of the operon for Vi antigen biosynthesis in Salmonella typhi. We further show… CONTINUE READING
