Transcription profiling of B anthracis wild type and codY mutant 7CodYS

ABSTRACT: B. anthracis 7702 and the codY mutant 7CodYS were grown in R-medium (Ristroph, J.D. & Ivins, B.E. (1983). Elaboration of Bacillus anthracis antigens in a new, defined culture medium. Infect. Immun. 39:483-486) with 0.6% sodium bicarbonate until A600 = 0.2 or 1.0. The transcriptome of both strains was compared at both time-points.

In gram-positive bacteria, CodY is an important regulator of genes whose expression changes upon nutrient limitation and acts as a repressor of virulence gene expression in some pathogenic species. Here, we report the role of CodY in Bacillus anthracis, the etiologic agent of anthrax. Disruption of codY completely abolished virulence in a toxinogenic, noncapsulated strain, indicating that the activity of CodY is required for full virulence of B. anthracis.
