Formation of a Termination-Resistant RNA Polymerase Complex: Studies on the Phage 82 Q Protein
Due to their early discovery, relative simplicity, and well-defined function, the Q antiterminator proteins of bacteriophage lambda and related lambdoid phages serve as a model for understanding how the elongation and ...
Mechanisms Controlling the Cell Envelope Remodeling Activities of the Escherichia Coli Cytokinetic Ring
In Escherichia coli, cytokinesis requires the constriction of all the cell envelope layers: the inner membrane, the peptidoglycan (PG) cell wall and the outer membrane (OM). Such dramatic cell envelope remodeling requires ...
A novel sigma factor antagonist that binds to RNA polymerase
Sigma (σ) factors direct programs of gene expression by binding to and determining the promoter recognition specificity of RNA polymerase (RNAP). Genes transcribed under the control of alternative σs allow cells to respond ...
A sigma factor and anti-sigma factor that control swarming motility and biofilm formation in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an environmental bacterium and opportunistic human pathogen of major clinical significance. It is the principal cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and a leading ...
