  1. Mytelka D, Chamberlin M. Escherichia coli fliAZY operon. J Bacteriol. 1996;178:24-34 pubmed
    ..FliZ and FliY are not required for motility but may regulate sigma F activity, perhaps in response to a putative cell density signal that may be detected by FliY, a member of the bacterial extracellular solute-binding protein family 3. ..
  2. Joo D, Ng N, Calendar R. A sigma32 mutant with a single amino acid change in the highly conserved region 2.2 exhibits reduced core RNA polymerase affinity. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 1997;94:4907-12 pubmed
    ..Based on these results, we conclude that at least one specific amino acid in region 2.2 is involved in core RNAP interaction. ..

    ..coli and Salmonella typhimurium, and these factors appear to be representative of a family of factors implicated in flagellar synthesis in many bacterial species, which we propose to designate the sigma 28 family. ..
  5. Mirel D, Chamberlin M. The Bacillus subtilis flagellin gene (hag) is transcribed by the sigma 28 form of RNA polymerase. J Bacteriol. 1989;171:3095-101 pubmed
    ..subtilis cells entered the stationary phase. The transcript levels then decreased to zero within 4 h after the onset of sporulation. Hence, sigma 28 RNA polymerase function is temporally regulated. ..
  6. Helmann J, Marquez L, Chamberlin M. Cloning, sequencing, and disruption of the Bacillus subtilis sigma 28 gene. J Bacteriol. 1988;170:1568-74 pubmed
    ..Since the flbB gene product is a positive regulator of flagellar synthesis in E. coli, it is likely that sigma 28 functions to regulate flagellar synthesis in B. subtilis. ..
  7. Joo D, Nolte A, Calendar R, Zhou Y, Jin D. Multiple regions on the Escherichia coli heat shock transcription factor sigma32 determine core RNA polymerase binding specificity. J Bacteriol. 1998;180:1095-102 pubmed
    ..2, and the other was in a region conserved only among heat shock sigma factors. These data suggest that there is more than one core RNAP binding region in sigma32 and that differences in contact sites probably exist among sigma factors. ..
  8. Gyaneshwar P, Paliy O, McAuliffe J, Jones A, Jordan M, Kustu S. Lessons from Escherichia coli genes similarly regulated in response to nitrogen and sulfur limitation. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2005;102:3453-8 pubmed
    ..coli grown aerobically in minimal medium. Responses of metE to S and N limitation pointed to an interesting physiological rationale for the regulatory subcircuit controlled by the methionine activator MetR. ..

    ..We have determined the complete nucleotide sequence of the gene encoding sigma 54 (ntrA) in Salmonella. ..
  10. Calendar R, Erickson J, Halling C, Nolte A. Deletion and insertion mutations in the rpoH gene of Escherichia coli that produce functional sigma 32. J Bacteriol. 1988;170:3479-84 pubmed
    ..5% of the wild-type level at 30 degrees C. However, the mRNA from several heat shock promoters was decreased only twofold, suggesting that the strain has a significant amount of sigma 32. ..
