The protein encoded by katF (also known as nur, appR, csi-2, abrD, and rpoS in various alleles) has been biochemically confirmed to be an alternate sigma transcription factor and renamed sigma S. Its synthesis is controlled transcriptionally and posttranscriptionally by as yet undefined mechanisms that are active well into stationary phase. sigma S controls a regulon of 30 or more genes expressed in response to starvation and during the transition to stationary phase. Proteins in the regulon… CONTINUE READING
