Dyszel, JL, Soares, JA, Swearingen, MC, Lindsay, A, Smith, JN and Ahmer, BM (2010) E. coli K-12 and EHEC genes regulated by SdiA. PLoS ONE 5:e8946


Escherichia and Salmonella encode SdiA, a transcription factor of the LuxR family that regulates genes in response to N-acyl homoserine lactones (AHLs) produced by other species of bacteria. E. coli genes that change expression in the presence of plasmid-encoded sdiA have been identified by several labs. However, many of these genes were identified by overexpressing sdiA on a plasmid and have not been tested for a response to sdiA produced from its natural position in the chromosome or for a response to AHL.
