Regulation at complex bacterial promoters: how bacteria use different promoter organisations to produce different regulatory outcomes

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Colleges, School and Institutes


Most bacterial promoters are regulated by several signals. This is reflected in the complexity of their organization, with multiple binding sites for different transcription factors. Studies of a small number of complex promoters have revealed different distinct mechanisms that integrate the effects of multiple transcription factors.
