The cspABEG deletion BX04 is cold-sensitive and forms filaments at 15C (Xia, 2001). CspE is a cold shock protein homolog, but is constitutively expressed at 37C. CspE has transcription antitermination activity. CspE affects rpoS and uspA expression. CspE is a negative regulator of cspA transcription. CspE binds ssDNA containing six or more contiguous dT residues with high affinity (Johnston, 2006).
