Abstract :

The RNA polymerase holoenzyme promoter of Myxococcus xanthus' 4521 gene, involved in starvation and A-signaling-dependent fruiting body development, compares favorably to the sigma54 family of enteric and other bacteria promoters. A shared holoenzyme with mbhA is likely but differences in their gene expression timing and conditions indicate upstream core promoter binding to different activator proteins.
