Abstract

Point mutations in the CspC CSDs caused a more severe phenotype than that of the null strain. None of the C. crescentus CSPs complemented the cold sensitivity of E. coli BX04 mutant. However, the individual CSDs of C. crescentus CspC complemented this phenotype. A microarray global transcriptional profiling showed the absence of cspC affected the transcription of 11 genes at exponential phase and 60 genes at stationary phase. mRNA decay experiments showed that the sciP, aceA e CC0682 mRNAs were less stable in the cspC mutant, indicating that its effect could be at least partially due to posttranscriptional regulation.
