The Shigella flexneri transcription activator MxiE is produced by transcriptional slippage from two overlapping open reading frames. By using plasmids encoding a mxiD-lacZ translational fusion, we showed that transcriptional slippage in mxiE influences both transcription and translation of the downstream mxiD gene encoding an essential component of the type III secretion apparatus.
