RstA DNA-binding transcriptional dual regulator

Synonyms: RstA-phosphorylated, RstA
RstA appears to control genes involved in different biological processes, such as acid tolerance, curli fimbria formation, and anaerobic respiration, among others [2]. Some phenotypes caused by RstA have been identified by mutational analysis. For example, RstA is a suppressor of a lesion in yjeE, a gene essential for cell growth and whose cellular function is unknown [5]. RstA overproduction causes drug resistance [6, 7]|. RstA belongs to the two-component system RstA/RstB [1]. Both genes, rstA, encoding the response regulator, and rstB, encoding the sensor kinase, are transcribed together in an operon that is induced under low-Mg2+ growth conditions through the PhoP/PhoQ two-component system [8]. rstA expression is reduced in a phoP phoQ double mutant and in phoP phoQ pmrA and phoP phoQ pmrB triple mutants [9].
