Hromockyj A, Tucker S, Maurelli A. Temperature regulation of Shigella virulence: identification of the repressor gene virR, an analogue of hns, and partial complementation by tyrosyl transfer RNA (tRNA1(Tyr)). Mol Microbiol. 1992;6:2113-24 pubmed
..These data constitute the first direct genetic evidence that virR is an analogue of the E. coli hns gene, and suggest a model for temperature regulation of Shigella species virulence via the bacterial translational machinery. ..
