Thioredoxin, a small, ubiquitous protein which participates in redox reactions through the reversible oxidation of its active center dithiol to a disulfide, is an essential protein in Bacillus subtilis. A variety of stresses, including heat or salt stress or ethanol treatment, strongly enhanced the synthesis of thioredoxin in B. subtilis. The stress induction of the monocistronic trxA gene encoding thioredoxin occurs at two promoters. The general stress sigma factor, sigmaB, was required for… CONTINUE READING
