Abstract
Initiation of transcription from the cytRP promoter in Escherichia coli is activated by the cAMP-CRP complex and negatively regulated by the CytR repressor protein. By combining gel retardation and footprinting assays, we show that cAMP-CRP binds to a single site centered at position -64 and induces a considerable bend in the DNA. CytR binds to a region immediately downstream from, and partially overlapping, the CRP site, and induces a modest bend into the DNA. In combination, cAMP-CRP and CytR bind co-operatively to cytRP forming a nucleoprotein complex in which the proteins directly interact with each other and bind to the same face of the DNA helix. CytR binding concomitantly antagonizes the cAMP-CRP-induced bend. This study indicates that the minimal DNA region required to obtain CytR regulation consists of a single binding site for each of cAMP-CRP and CytR. The case described here, in which a protein-induced DNA bend is modulated by a second protein, may illustrate a mechanism that applies to other regulatory systems.
