    Abstract. It is now clear that in Escherichia coli the synthesis of many of the components involved in transcription and translation are carefully regulated. For example, the expression of a number of these genes is under stringent control (Dennis and Nomura, ; Furano and Wittel, ), the mechanism by which bacteria, when starved for an amino acid, turn off the synthesis of ribosomal RNA. INTRODUCTION. Since the identification of the structural gene for Escherichia coli poly(A) polymerase I (PAP I) in (), a variety of experiments have shown that polyadenylation plays an integral role in RNA metabolism (2– 7).Specifically, the deletion of the structural gene for PAP I (pcnB) leads to a 90% reduction in poly(A) levels along with increased mRNA half-lives (2, 5).

    ModE is the molybdate-sensing transcription regulator that controls the expression of genes related to molybdate homeostasis in Escherichia coli. ModE is activated by binding molybdate and acts as both an activator and a repressor. By genomic systematic evolution of ligands by exponential enrichment (SELEX) screening and promoter reporter assays, we have identified a total of nine operons. Nitrogen limitation in Escherichia coli controls the expression of about genes of the nitrogen regulated (Ntr) response, including the ammonia-assimilating glutamine synthetase. Low intracellular glutamine controls the Ntr response through several regulators, whose activities are modulated by a .

    The stationary-phase sigma factor (RpoS) regulates many cellular responses to environmental stress conditions such as heat, acid, and alkali shocks. On the other hand, mutations at the rpoS locus have frequently been detected among pathogenic as well as commensal strains of Escherichia coli. The objective of this study was to perform a functional analysis of the RpoS-mediated stress responses. Introduction. Entry of Escherichia coli cells into stationary phase results in complex morphological and physiological changes (Siegele and Kolter, ; Hengge‐Aronis et al., ).Stationary phase cells become more resistant to a variety of stresses including starvation, near UV radiation, high temperature, hydrogen peroxide, acidic pH and high medium osmolarity (Loewen and Hengge.

A temperature shift-up accompanied by a reduction in RNA polymerase activity in Escherichia coli causes an increased rate of initiation leading to a to fold increase in chromosome copy number. A temperature shift-up without a reduction in polymerase activity induces only a transient non-scheduled initiation of chromosome replication caused by heat shock with no detectable effect on.

Abstract. Transcription initiation is accompanied with iterative synthesis and release of short transcripts. The molar ratio of enzyme to template was found to be critical for the amounts and distribution of the abortive products synthesized by Escherichia coli RNA polymerase from several promoters.

At a high ratio abortive synthesis of 4–8 nt were enhanced at the γ P R promoter. The Escherichia coli Crl protein has been described as a transcriptional coactivator for the stationary-phase sigma factor σS.

In a transcription system with highly purified components, we demonstrate that Crl affects transcription not only by the EσS RNA polymerase holoenzyme but also by Eσ70 and Eσ Crl increased transcription dramatically but only when the σ concentration was low and.

Under these conditions, RpoS levels increase to a degree similar to that seen with carbon starvation, and RpoS-dependent gene expression follows accordingly (13, 34, 39).This occurs despite continuing slow growth, which we suspect results from the mobilization of intracellular polyphosphate stores.

Science. The rate of synthesis of the β and β′ subunits of RNA polymerase relative to the rate of synthesis of total protein was found to remain constant with increasing steady state growth rate.

This is in contrast to the relative synthesis rates of ribosomal proteins which are known to increase with growth rate. Yet the ratio of the rate of transcription of the ribosomal protein (rplJL) and RNA. Ribonuclease III of the gram‐negative bacterium Escherichia coli processes rRNA and mRNA precursors, and its catalytic action can regulate gene expression by controlling mRNA translation and stability.

It has been proposed that RNase III can function in a non‐catalytic manner, by binding RNA without cleaving phosphodiesters. However.A RNA-DNA hybridization assay for ribonucleoside diphosphate reductase (RDP reductase) mRNA was used to determine whether control of RDP reductase synthesis in Escherichia coli is at the level of.
