Disease relevance of oxyS


High impact information on oxyS

  • In vitro transcription assays demonstrated that avicins activate OxyR and its target genes katG and oxyS in a DTT-reversible manner [3].
  • ExpR, a LuxR homolog of Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora, activates transcription of rsmA, which specifies a global regulatory RNA-binding protein [4].
  • Probably the BtuB is negatively regulated by a global regulator, oxyS, induced during oxidative stress [5].
  • Our RT-PCR analysis revealed an elevation of expression of the oxyS gene in the lon mutant [5].
  • Comparisons were made both by traditional and QPCR methods with similar results and indicate that the survival defect of an oxyR and oxyS mutant described previously can be attributed to the loss of oxyR alone [6].
