Vibrio cholerae is both a human pathogen and a natural inhabitant of aquatic environments. In the aquatic environment, microorganisms are found attached to surfaces in structures known as biofilms. We have identified a transcriptional repressor in V. cholerae that inhibits exopolysaccharide synthesis and biofilm development. Our studies show that this repressor is the V. cholerae homologue of Escherichia coli CytR, a protein that represses nucleoside uptake and catabolism when nucleosides are… CONTINUE READING
