Abstract

The contribution of histone-like proteins to the transcriptional regulation of virulence gene networks is a common feature among pathogenic bacteria. In this article we review current knowledge about the regulative role of major histone-like proteins in the silencing/activation of the invasivity phenotype of Shigella, the etiological agent of bacillary dissentery.
