  8. Rudolph C, Upton A, Lloyd R. Maintaining replication fork integrity in UV-irradiated Escherichia coli cells. DNA Repair (Amst). 2008;7:1589-602 pubmed publisher
    ..Instead, nascent strands may be protected by the simple expedient of promoting restart. We also report that the efficiency of fork reactivation is not affected in polB mutants. ..
  9. Zou C, Thomas M, Keen J, Glass R. A nested set of C-terminal deletions of the alpha subunit of Escherichia coli RNA polymerase define regions concerned with assembly, proteolysis, stabilization and transcriptional activation in vivo. Genes Cells. 1997;2:81-94 pubmed
    ..Their presence is also essential for transcription activation at class I CRP-dependent promoters. The rpoA341-mediated substitution, K271E, does not define an activation contact site for MelR. ..

    ..It does not contribute to AI-2 formation in wildtype E. coli and S. aureus under the conditions tested, but may be responsible for the AI-2-like activities reported for other organisms lacking the luxS gene. ..

    ..However, mutation of the proline contained within the NPTH site of HP0770 did not affect motility and flagellar assembly, although it clearly interfered with processing when the protein was heterologously produced in Escherichia coli...
