Abstract / Description of output

The bacterial nucleoid-associated proteins H-NS and StpA can form homomeric or heteromeric complexes, a parallel with protein HU. Thus, functional modulation of H-NS and StpA by one another and by other proteins with appropriate interaction domains is possible. This has implications for bacterial pathogenesis and adaptation to environmental stress.
