Nature of the promoter activated by C.PvuII, an unusual regulatory protein conserved among restriction-modification systems. - Journal of bacteriology
A widely distributed family of small regulators, called C proteins, controls a subset of restriction-modification systems. The C proteins studied to date activate transcription of their own genes and that of downstream endonuclease genes; this arrangement appears to delay endonuclease expression relative to that of the protective methyltransferase when the genes enter a new cell. C proteins bind to conserved sequences called C boxes. In the PvuII system, the C boxes have been reported to extend from -23 to +3 relative to the transcription start for the gene for the C protein, an unexpected starting position relative to a bound activator. This study suggests that transcript initiation within the C boxes represents initial, C-independent transcription of pvuIICR. The major C protein-dependent transcript appears to be a leaderless mRNA starting farther downstream, at the initiation codon for the pvuIIC gene. This conclusion is based on nuclease S1 transcript mapping and the effects of a series of nested deletions in the promoter region. Furthermore, replacing the region upstream of the pvuIIC initiation codon with a library of random oligonucleotides, followed by selection for C-dependent transcription, yielded clones having sequences that resemble -10 promoter hexamers. The -35 hexamer of this promoter would lie within the C boxes. However, the spacing between C boxes/-35 and the apparent -10 hexamer can be varied by +/-4 bp with little effect. This suggests that, like some other activator-dependent promoters, PpvuIICR may not require a -35 hexamer. Features of this transcription activation system suggest explanations for its broad host range.
