Abstract

Expression of cellulose and curli fimbriae in Salmonella typhimurium is dependent on the transcriptional regulator CsgD. Transcription of csgD itself is influenced by a variety of regulatory stimuli. Complex nucleoprotein arrangements modulate the transcriptional activity of csgD and trigger the transition between the planktonic status and biofilm formation.
