Control of Listeria monocytogenes virulence by 5'-untranslated RNA.

Abstract:

The Gram-positive bacterium Listeria monocytogenes uses a wide range of virulence factors for its pathogenesis. Expression of five of these factors has previously been shown to be subjected to post-transcriptional regulation as a result of their long 5'-untranslated region (5'-UTR). We have investigated the presence of 5'-UTRs among the other known virulence genes and genes that encode putatively virulence-associated surface proteins. Our results strongly suggest that L. monocytogenes control...
