Abstract

NsrR is a nitric oxide-sensitive regulator of transcription. In Escherichia coli, NsrR is a repressor of the hmp gene encoding the flavohemoglobin that detoxifies nitric oxide. Three other transcription units (ytfE, ygbA, and hcp-hcr) are known to be subject to regulation by NsrR. This chapter describes experimental and statistical protocols used to identify NsrR-binding sites in the E. coli chromosome using chromatin immunoprecipitation and microarray analysis. The methods are applicable, with suitable modifications, to any regulatory protein and any organism.
