ChIP-on-chip of OmpR binding in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium strain SL1344 and E.scherichia coli strain CSH50 at pH 7 and pH 4.5 including analysis of OmpR binding in SL1344 in the absence and presence of novobiocin (25 μg/ml)

ABSTRACT: OmpR is a DNA binding protein belonging to the OmpR/EnvZ two component system. This system is known to sense changes in osmolarity in Escherichia coli. Recently, OmpR in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium was found to be activated by acidic pH and DNA relaxation. In this study, ChIP-on-chip was employed to ascertain the genome-wide distribution of OmpR in Salmonella Typhimurium and Escherichia coli in acidic and neutral pH. In addition we investigated the affect of DNA relaxation on OmpR binding in Salmonella Typhimurium. Analysis of OmpR binding at pH 7 and pH 4.5 in E-minimal medium in both SL1344 and CSH50. Three independent biological replicates at each pH 7 and pH 4.5 was performed. This was done in each strain background. DNA was immunopreciptated using an anti-FLAG anitbody which binds to flag-tagged OmpR in both strains. Two control ‘mock’ experiments were performed under the same culture condtions in each strain background; DNA was immunopreciptated using normal mouse IgG antibody. To analyse the effect of DNA relaxation onOmpR binding SL1344 was maintained in the exponential growth phase in LB broth with and without treatment with the drug novobiocin (25 μg/ml) for 40 min. This was peformed on two independent occasions. In all cases the experimental immunoprecipitated DNA was hybridised against the input DNA.

Bacterial regulon evolution: distinct responses and roles for the identical OmpR proteins of Salmonella Typhimurium and Escherichia coli in the acid stress response.

The evolution of new gene networks is a primary source of genetic innovation that allows bacteria to explore and exploit new niches, including pathogenic interactions with host organisms. For example, the archetypal DNA binding protein, OmpR, is identical between Salmonella Typhimurium serovar Typhimurium and Escherichia coli, but regulatory specialization has resulted in different environmental triggers of OmpR expression and largely divergent OmpR regulons. Specifically, ompR mRNA and OmpR pro  ...[more]
