Induction of ResDE-dependent gene expression in Bacillus subtilis in response to nitric oxide and nitrosative stress

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

55 Scopus citations


Transcription of ResDE-controlled genes in Bacillus subtilis was induced by sodium nitroprusside and nitric oxide. This induction requires the sensor kinase ResE and the response regulator ResD. Among members of the ResDE regulon, only the flavohemoglobin gene was induced by nitrosative stress via both a ResDE-dependent mechanism and an unidentified ResDE-independent mechanism.
