The facultative photosynthetic bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides 2.4.1 has a nitric oxide-response transcriptional regulator, NnrR, and nitric oxide reductase (NOR), although it is incapable of denitrification. To investigate at the genomic level the physiological response to nitrosative stress of R. sphaeroides, the transcriptome profiles of strain 2.4.1 and its NnrR mutant were analyzed before and after exposure to nitrosating agents, S-nitrosoglutathione (GSNO) and sodium nitroprusside (SNP), ...[more]
Project description:DNA microarray analysis was employed to investigate the transcriptome response to nitrosative stress in a non-denitrifying facultative photosynthetic bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides 2.4.1. We focused on the role played by a nitric oxide-response transcriptional regulator NnrR in the response. The transcriptome profiles of R. sphaeroides 2.4.1 and its nnrR mutant before and after exposure to nitrosating agents S-nitrosoglutathione (GSNO) or sodium nitroprusside (SNP) under semiaerobic conditions were analyzed. R. sphaeroides 2.4.1 and its nnrR mutant were cultivated in glass bottles under semiaerobic growth conditions. When the optical density at 600 nm reached approximately 0.15-0.2, 1 mM GSNO or SNP was added to the medium. RNA was isolated from a 50 ml aliquot of the culture prior to the addition of GSNO or SNP and at 15 min after the addition. The experiment was performed in duplicate independent cultures.

Project description:mRNA levels were measured in Rhodobacter sphaeroides 2.4.1 at 20% O2 and 0.5% O2, Rhodobacter sphaeroides 2.4.1 App11 (AppA-null), Rhodobacter sphaeroides 2.4.1 (pPNs) and PpsR mutant PPS2-4. The mRNA samples were prepared from cultures supplied with 20% O2, 1% CO2, and 79% N2, and grown in the dark to an OD of 0.18. The mRNA levels for each strain was measured three times. Keywords: repeat sample
Project description:The facultatively photosynthetic bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides harbors an unusual LOV (light, oxygen, voltage) domain protein, RsLOV. While showing a characteristic photocycle, the protein misses a C - terminal output domain, similar to PpSB2 in Pseudomonas putida. Oxygen tension and light quantity are the two main responsible factors controlling the expression of photosynthesis genes in Rhodobacter sphaeroides. Two photoreceptor proteins are known to be involved in this regulation: the intensively studied AppA protein and the more recently identified cryptochrome-like protein CryB. Here we show by transcriptome and physiological studies that RsLOV is also involved in the regulation of photosynthetic gene expression. Our data further hint to a connection between RsLOV and the carbon hydrate metabolism, chemotaxis, as well as to the cellular response to photooxidative stress. RsLOV does not only affect blue light dependent gene expression but also redox-dependent regulation. This SuperSeries is composed of the following subset Series: GSE33194: R. sphaeroides Δlov vs. R. sphaeroides 2.4.1 (microarobic conditions) GSE33259: R. sphaeroides Δlov vs. R. sphaeroides 2.4.1 (blue light, semiaerobic conditions) GSE33260: R. sphaeroides Δlov vs. R. sphaeroides 2.4.1 (singlet oxygen stress, aerobic conditions)
