Abstract

The seven Mycobacterium tuberculosis whiB-like genes encode small proteins postulated to be transcriptional regulators. A systematic real-time reverse transcription-PCR analysis following exposure to antibiotics and a variety of growth and in vitro stress conditions indicates differential, and in some cases dramatic, transcription modulations for the different M. tuberculosis whiB family members. This information together with biochemical analyses of the whiB1 to whiB7 gene products will be important for understanding the biology of this novel family of proteins in mycobacteria and related actinomycetes.
