    Infect Immun 68:4441-51. 2000
    ..Virulence for endocarditis was restored by correction of the sloC mutation but not by provision of the sloC gene in trans, suggesting that virulence requires the expression of other genes in the sloC operon...

    J J Rich
    Department of Plant Pathology, University of Wisconsin Madison 53706
    J Bacteriol 176:7468-75. 1994
    ..Southwestern (DNA-protein) analysis revealed that the lemA and gacA genes were required for the full expression of a DNA binding activity...

    Mol Microbiol 28:917-29. 1998
    ..Thus, salA appears to encode a novel regulator that activates the expression of at least two separate genetic subsets of the gacS/gacA regulon, one pathway leading to syringomycin production and the other resulting in plant disease...

    J V Califano
    Department of Periodontics, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia 23298, USA
    Infect Immun 68:5247-53. 2000
    ..gingivalis strains, including clinical isolates, diversity among strains was apparent. This suggests that ISPg5 and other IS elements may contribute to strain diversity and can be used for strain fingerprinting...

    J Periodontal Res 38:411-6. 2003
    ..We sought to determine the distribution of seven IS elements from strain W83 among nine P. gingivalis laboratory strains and nine clinical isolates and to use these findings to determine strain relationships...

    T Kitten
    Department of Plant Pathology, University of Wisconsin Madison 53706, USA
    J Bacteriol 178:1548-55. 1996
    ..It is unclear how alteration of ribosomal protein expression compensates in this instance for loss of a transcriptional activator, but a regulatory role for L20 and L35 apart from their function in the ribosome may be indicated...
