Project description:We mapped the genome-wide binding of the flagellar regulators FlhD, FlhC, and FliA in FLAG-tagged derivatives of E. coli K-12 MG1655 using ChIP coupled with deep sequencing (ChIP-seq). We identify new binding sites for each factor.
Project description:We mapped the genome-wide binding of sigma 70 in E. coli K-12 MG1655 and an hns mutant that is otherwise isogenic using ChIP coupled with deep sequencing (ChIP-seq). We show that intragenic binding of sigma 70 is increased in the hns mutant.
Project description:We mapped the genome-wide binding of C-terminally FLAG-tagged AraC in S. enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhimurium strain 14028s using ChIP coupled with deep sequencing (ChIP-seq). We identified five putative target loci for AraC: upstream of araB/araC, araE, araJ, STM14_0178, and within sseD.
Project description:We used ChIP-seq to map the binding of of C-terminally FLAG3-tagged PhoB to the Escherichia coli K-12 genome during growth in MOPS minimal media with low phosphate or high phosphate (0.2 mM or 1.32 mM, respectively). As a control, we performed ChIP-seq in an untagged strain. We also used ChIP-seq to map Sigma 70 (associates with initiating RNA polymerase) binding across the E. coli K-12 genome in wild-type, ΔphoB, Δhns, and Δhns ΔphoB strains grown in low phosphate medium to determine whether PhoB modulates recruitment of RNA polymerase to promoters and whether this is modulated by H-NS.
Project description:To determine sites where RpoS binds (and hence likely plays a direct role in transcription), we used ChIP-seq to map the association of RpoS across the Escherichia coli chromosome during stationary phase growth in minimal medium. To facilitate ChIP, RpoS was C-terminally SPA-tagged at its native locus.
Project description:We used ChIP-seq to map binding of the CRISPR surveillance complex, Cascade, in a Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium strain lacking the gene encoding the endonuclease Cas3. We performed ChIP-seq in strains with wild-type and mutant sequences upstream of the two CRISPR arrays, and in strains with wild-type and mutant nusE genes to determine the impact of Nus factor antitermination on CRISPR array function.
Project description:FliA in S. Typhimurium directs transcription of large numbers of unstable, non-coding RNAs from intragenic promoters. Also in this study, we identify two previously unreported FliA-transcribed protein coding genes, including sdiA, which encodes a transcription factor that responds to quorum sensing signals produced by other bacteria.
