The regulatory RNA gene micF is present in several species of gram-negative bacteria and is phylogenetically conserved.


micF RNA post-transcriptionally regulates Escherichia coli outer membrane protein F (OmpF), in response to temperature increase and other environmental stress conditions, by binding to ompF mRNA and destabilizing the message. Southern analyses show that the micF gene is present in related Gram-negative bacteria, including Salmonella typhimurium, Klebsiella… (More)
