Role of stress response sigma factor SigG in Mycobactenum tuberculosis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The sigG gene of Mycobacterium tuberculosis was disrupted by homologous recombination, and the genes regulated by SigG were examined by real-time reverse-transcription PCR and microarray studies. The SigG consensus promoter recognition sequence was identified as GCGNGT-N15-18-CGANCA. A ΔsigG mutant was found to be more resistant to mitomycin C treatment than the wild-type strain, indicating that it may be involved in the SOS response in M. tuberculosis.
