A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Shigella, the etiological agent of human bacillary dysentery, invades the colonic epithelium where it induces an intense inflammatory response. Entry of Shigella into epithelial cells involves a type III secretion machinery, encoded by the mxi and spa operons, and the IpaA-D secreted proteins. In this study, we have identified secreted proteins of 46 and 60 kDa as the products of virA and ipaH9.8, respectively, the latter being a member of the ipaH multigene family. Inactivation of virA did not affect entry into epithelial cells. Using lacZ transcriptional fusions, we found that transcription of virA and four ipaH genes, but not that of the ipaBCDA and mxi operons, was markedly increased during growth in the presence of Congo red and in an ipaD mutant, two conditions in which secretion through the Mxi-Spa machinery is enhanced. Transcription of the virA and ipaH genes was also transiently activated upon entry into epithelial cells. These results suggest that transcription of the virA and ipaH genes is regulated by the type III secretion machinery and that a regulatory cascade differentially controls transcription of genes encoding secreted proteins, some of which, like virA, are not required for entry.
