Abstract [en]

Alternative σ-factors of bacteria bind core RNA polymerase to program the specific promoter selectivity of the holoenzyme. Signal-responsive changes in the availability of different σ-factors redistribute the RNA polymerase among the distinct promoter classes in the genome for appropriate adaptive, developmental and survival responses. The σ(54) -factor is structurally and functionally distinct from all other σ-factors. Consequently, binding of σ(54) to RNA polymerase confers unique features on the cognate holoenzyme, which requires activation by an unusual class of mechano-transcriptional activators, whose activities are highly regulated in response to environmental cues. This review summarizes the current understanding of the mechanisms of transcriptional activation by σ(54) -RNA polymerase and highlights the impact of global regulatory factors on transcriptional efficiency from σ(54) -dependent promoters. These global factors include the DNA-bending proteins IHF and CRP, the nucleotide alarmone ppGpp, and the RNA polymerase-targeting protein DksA.
