    Alkaline phosphatases (APs), known inducible enzymes of the Pho regulon and poorly characterized in cyanobacteria, hydrolyze phosphomonoesters to produce inorganic phosphate (Pi) during Pi starvation. In this study, two predicted alkaline phosphatase genes in the genome of Anabaena sp. PCC 7120,...

    Previous microarray analyses have shown a key role for the two-component system PhoBR (SYNW0947, SYNW0948) in the regulation of P transport and metabolism in the marine cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. WH8102. However, there is some evidence that another regulator, SYNW1019 (PtrA), probably...

    In Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 extracellular phosphate levels are relayed to the pho regulon via the SphS histidine kinase. In this cyanobacterium, the start codon of sphS has been assigned as a GUG, thereby predicting SphS to be a cytosolic protein lacking a putative N-terminal region found in...

    Chromatin dynamics crucially contributes to gene regulation. Studies of the yeast PHO5 promoter were key to establish this nowadays accepted view and continuously provide mechanistic insight in chromatin remodeling and promoter regulation, both on single locus as well as on systems level. The...

  • The Pho Regulons of Bacteria. Vershinina, O. A.; Znamenskaya, L. V. // Microbiology (00262617);Sep2002, Vol. 71 Issue 5, p497 

    Bacterial Pho regulons contain genes whose products are involved in the transport and assimilation of inorganic phosphate. The expression of these genes is regulated by a specific two-component signal transduction system. The paper summarizes data on the organization and function of Pho regulons...

    Comparative approach to computer analysis of regulatory signals allows one to predict new signals in bacterial genomes with high accuracy. A prediction is reliable whenever candidate signals are consistently observed in several related genomes. We applied comparative approach to the analysis of...

    The transcriptional regulators Pho4p and Pho2p are involved in transcription of several genes in the PHO regulon of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Genetic evidence with temperaturesensitive pho4 and pho2 mutants suggested that Pho4p and Pho2p interact with each other. Immunoprecipitation experiments...

    Primary productivity of open ocean environments, such as those inhabited by marine picocyanobacteria, is often limited by low inorganic phosphate (P). To observe how these organisms cope with P starvation, we constructed a full genome microarray for Synechococcus sp. WH8102 and compared...
