|Gene:||ydeO||Accession Numbers: G6789 (EcoCyc), b1499, ECK1493|
YdeO belongs to the AraC/XylS family of transcriptional regulators and shows more similarity to YhiW, AppY, AdiY, and GadX than the other AraC/XylS regulators [Gallegos97, Ibarra08]. The members of this family exhibit two domains, an amino-terminal domain involved in coinducer recognition and dimerization and a carboxy-terminal domain that contains a potential helix-turn-helix DNA-binding motif [Gallegos97, Martin01].
YdeO activates genes involved in the cellular response to acid resistance [Masuda02, Masuda03, Ma04]. This protein, together with the proteins HNS, EvgA, and GadE, pertains to a specific regulatory circuit that is functional in exponential-phase cells growing in minimal medium [Masuda02, Masuda03, Ma04]. Several of the genes directly regulated by YdeO are also directly regulated by GadX [Masuda03].
The YdeO regulon has been determined [Durban13]. Based on ChIP-chip, RT-qPCR, EMSA, DNase I footprinting, and reporter assay, 7 new operons were identified as members of the YdeO regulon, including four stress response transcription factors, DctR, NhaR, GadE, and Gad, and several genes involved in respiration [Durban13].
YdeO plays an important role in survival under both acidic and anaerobic conditions [Durban13].
Based on transcriptome analysis, the YdeO -> GadE transcriptional cascade was determined. A total of 106 genes were affected by YdeO, among which 53 genes were upregulated, and 23 of these were induced by GadE; a model has been proposed [Durban13].
The YdeO-box is an inverted repeat of hexanucleotides, with the sequence 5´-ATTTCA-3´, and the length of the spacer between this inverted repeat sequence ranges from 9 to 21 nucleotides [Durban13].
ydeO is transcribed in an operon together with the gene safA [Masuda03]. This gene codes for a protein that directly interacts with PhoQ to activate the PhoQ/PhoP system, which regulates genes, including Mg2+ transporters and lipopolysaccharide modification genes [Eguchi07].
YdeO expression is induced by UV irradiation via the EvgS/EvgA system and thus controls the expression of 21 genes [Yamanaka12].
