Functions Required for Extracellular Quinolone Signaling by Pseudomonas aeruginosa 2011 74870 A set of 30 mutants exhibiting reduced production of the phenazine poison pyocyanin were isolated following transposon mutagenesis of Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1. The mutants could be subdivided into those with defects in the primary phenazine biosyn...
The Influence of Iron on Pseudomonas aeruginosa Physiology: A regulatory link between iron and quorum sensing 2011 74870 In iron-replete environments the Pseudomonas aeruginosa Fur (ferric uptake regulator) protein represses expression of two small regulatory RNAs encoded by prrF1 and prrF2. Here we describe the effects of iron and PrrF regulation on P. aeruginosa phys...
Pseudomonas aeruginosa relA Contributes to Virulence in Drosophila melanogaster 2011 74870 The stringent response is a mechanism by which bacteria adapt to nutritional deficiencies through the production of the guanine nucleotides ppGpp and pppGpp produced by the RelA enzyme. We investigated the role of the relA gene in the ability of an e...
The Pseudomonas Quinolone Signal Regulates rhl Quorum Sensing in Pseudomonas aeruginosa 2011 74870 The opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa uses intercellular signals to control the density-dependent expression of many virulence factors. The las and rhl quorum-sensing systems function respectively through the autoinducers N-(3-oxododecano...
