The General Stress Response σS Is Regulated by a Partner Switch in the Gram-negative Bacterium Shewanella oneidensis

Abstract

Here, we show that a partner-switching system of the aquatic Proteobacterium Shewanella oneidensis regulates post-translationally σS (also called RpoS), the general stress response sigma factor. Genes SO2118 and SO2119 encode CrsA and CrsR, respectively. CrsR is a three-domain protein comprising a receiver, a phosphatase, and a kinase/anti-sigma domains, and CrsA is an anti-sigma antagonist. In vitro, CrsR sequesters σS and possesses kinase and phosphatase activities toward CrsA. In turn, dephosphorylated CrsA binds the anti-sigma domain of CrsR to allow the release of σS. This study reveals a novel pathway that post-translationally regulates the general stress response sigma factor differently than what was described for other proteobacteria like Escherichia coli. We argue that this pathway allows probably a rapid bacterial adaptation.
