- Differential binding profiles of StpA in wild-type and h-ns mutant cells: a comparative analysis of cooperative partners by chromatin immunoprecipitation-microarray analysisEbru Uyar
Graduate School of Information Science, Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan
J Bacteriol 191:2388-91. 2009..StpA binding regions essentially overlap those of H-NS in wild-type cells, while they are reduced to one-third in the hns mutant. The H-NS binding profile was unaffected by stpA inactivation...
- Involvement of the YneS/YgiH and PlsX proteins in phospholipid biosynthesis in both Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coliMika Yoshimura
Graduate School of Information Science, Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Ikoma, Nara, Japan
BMC Microbiol 7:69. 2007..Recently, a new two-step pathway catalyzed by PlsX and PlsY proteins for the initiation of phospholipid formation in Streptococcus pneumoniae has been reported...
- Regulation of chromosomal replication initiation by oriC-proximal DnaA-box clusters in Bacillus subtilisHajime Okumura
Graduate School of Biological Sciences, Nara Institute of Science and Technology, 8916 5, Takayama, Ikoma, Nara 630 0192, Japan
Nucleic Acids Res 40:220-34. 2012..We propose that DBCs negatively regulate replication initiation by interacting with DnaA molecules and play a major role, together with Spo0J/Soj, in regulating the activity of DnaA...
- Distribution of stable DnaA-binding sites on the Bacillus subtilis genome detected using a modified ChIP-chip methodShu Ishikawa
Graduate School of Information Science, Nara Institute of Science and Technology, 8916 5 Takayama, Ikoma, Nara, Japan
DNA Res 14:155-68. 2007....
- Interaction of Bacillus subtilis extracytoplasmic function (ECF) sigma factors with the N-terminal regions of their potential anti-sigma factorsMika Yoshimura
Department of Bioscience, Tokyo University of Agriculture, Sakuragaoka, Setagaya Ku, Tokyo 156 8502, Japan
Microbiology 150:591-9. 2004..The results presented here also show that these anti-sigma factors interact with ECF sigma factors through their N-terminal region, implying that the N-terminal domain resides inside the cytoplasmic membrane...
- The putative ABC transporter YheH/YheI is involved in the signalling pathway that activates KinA during sporulation initiationSanae Fukushima
Department of Bioscience, Tokyo University of Agriculture, Sakuragaoka, Tokyo, Japan
FEMS Microbiol Lett 256:90-7. 2006..Our results further suggest that the N-terminal region of YheH may play an important role in sensing the signal to be delivered to the C-terminally bound KinA...
