QseB DNA-binding transcriptional dual regulator

Synonyms: QseB-Phosphorylated, QseB
Summary:
QseB, "quorum-sensing E. coli regulator B", is the response regulator component of the QseB-QseC two-component system, which is one component of the quorum-sensing regulatory cascade involved in the regulation of biofilm formation[2], motility and flagella genes by activating transcription of flhDC, an operon that encodes the master regulator of these genes [3].QseB also regulates replication initiation by regulating DnaA expression [5]. This protein also may have an undetermined role in metal metabolism, because qseBC deletion mutants show hypersensitivity to several toxic cations [6]. QseB forms complexes with the chaperone DnaK and with the cell division protein FtsZ [5]. QseB and QseC of enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) and of E.
