  1. pmc A protein-induced DNA bend increases the specificity of a prokaryotic enhancer-binding protein
    J Dworkin
    Laboratory of Genetics, The Rockefeller University, New York, New York 10021, USA
    Genes Dev 12:894-900. 1998
    ..These opposite effects have the consequence of increasing the specificity of activation of a promoter that is susceptible to regulation by proteins bound to a distal site...
  2. ncbi Role of upstream activation sequences and integration host factor in transcriptional activation by the constitutively active prokaryotic enhancer-binding protein PspF
    J Dworkin
    Rockefeller University, 1230 York Avenue, New York, NY 10021, USA
    J Mol Biol 273:377-88. 1997
    ..These data, taken together, support the model that a precise promoter geometry is necessary for IHF to positively regulate transcription and that IHF may act to prevent activation from inappropriately spaced upstream sites...

    P Model
    The Rockefeller University, New York, New York 10021, USA
    Mol Microbiol 24:255-61. 1997
    ..The major product of the operon, PspA, may also serve as a negative regulator of an unusual porin, OmpG...
  4. pmc The PspA protein of Escherichia coli is a negative regulator of sigma(54)-dependent transcription
    J Dworkin
    Laboratory of Genetics, The Rockefeller University, New York, New York 10021, USA
    J Bacteriol 182:311-9. 2000
    ..We describe here the in vivo and in vitro properties of the PspA protein of Escherichia coli, which negatively regulates expression of the pspA promoter without binding DNA directly...
  5. pmc Autogenous control of PspF, a constitutively active enhancer-binding protein of Escherichia coli
    G Jovanovic
    Laboratory of Genetics, The Rockefeller University, New York, New York 10021, USA
    J Bacteriol 179:5232-7. 1997
    ..PspF production is independent of PspA (the negative regulator of the pspA to -E operon) and of PspB and -C (positive regulators)...

    J Dworkin
    Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, The Biological Laboratories, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    Cell 107:339-46. 2001
    ..Supporting this idea, transposition of spoIIAB to sites present in the forespore at the time of division impaired sporulation when a second pathway that participates in sigmaF activation was disabled...
