OmpR and EnvZ are pleiotropic regulatory proteins: positive regulation of the tripeptide permease (tppB) of Salmonella typhimurium.


The tppB locus of Salmonella typhimurium encodes the anaerobically-induced tripeptide permease. We have demonstrated that expression of tppB requires the function of the ompR and envZ gene products, originally identified as positive regulatory proteins required for the osmotic regulation of porin expression. Significantly, tppB expression is not osmotically regulated. We have also identified three additional genes whose expression depends on OmpR. Thus OmpR and EnvZ serve a more general regulatory role than has previously been supposed. This study provides the first detailed genetic analysis of the ompB locus of S. typhimurium.
