Positive regulation in the gram-positive bacterium: Bacillus subtilis



Positive regulation in the gram-positive bacterium: Bacillus subtilis



Annual Review of Microbiology 46: 429-459



Temporally and environmentally regulated gene expression in prokaryotes occurs primarily at the level of transcription initiation. Two main modes of regulation have been described, including either the binding of a repressor that blocks transcription or the interaction of a positive regulator with the transcription complex, leading to transcription initiation. Several classes can be distinguished among positive regulators according to their mechanisms of action.
