    Phenotypes of a mutant

  • no biofilm formation [Pubmed|24488317]
  • The protein

    [SW|Localization]

  • attached to the cell surface (on the outside of the cell), associated with peptidoglycan [Pubmed|21477127]
  • secretion requires [protein|search|SipW] [Pubmed|10559173]
  • [SW|Interactions]

  • [protein|search|TapA]-[protein|search|TasA] [Pubmed|24488317]
  • [protein|search|SipW]-[protein|search|TapA] [Pubmed|10559173]
  • Expression and Regulation

    Operon

  • ''[protein|search|tapA]-[protein|search|sipW]-[protein|search|tasA]'' [Pubmed|16430695]
  • [SW|Sigma factor]

  • [protein|search|SigA] [Pubmed|16430695]
  • Regulation

  • repressed by [protein|search|SinR] [Pubmed|16430695]
  • repressed during logrithmic growth ([protein|search|AbrB]) [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez/10464223,17720793 PubMed]
  • Regulatory mechanism

  • [protein|search|AbrB]: transcription repression [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez/10464223,17720793 PubMed]
  • [protein|search|SinR]: transcription repression [Pubmed|16430695]
  • [protein|search|RemA]: transcription activation [Pubmed|23646920]
  • [protein|search|LutR]: transcription activation [Pubmed|24196425]
  • Additional information

  • induction by sequestration of [protein|search|SinR] by [protein|search|SinI] or [protein|search|SlrA] [PubMed|15661000,19788541] or by SlrR [PubMed|20351052]
  • the '[protein|search|tapA]-[protein|search|sipW]-[protein|search|tasA]' operon is not expressed in a '[protein|search|ymdB]' mutant [PubMed|21856853]
  • the amount of the mRNA is substantially decreased upon depletion of [Rny|search|RNase Y] (this is likely due to the increased stability of the '[protein|search|sinR]' mRNA) [PubMed|21815947]
