Abstract

We carried out DNA microarray-based global transcript profiling of Escherichia coli in response to 4,5-dihydroxy-2-cyclopenten-1-one to explore the manifestation of its antibacterial activity. We show that it has widespread effects in E. coli affecting genes encoding proteins involved in cell metabolism and membrane synthesis and functions. Genes belonging to the regulon involved in synthesis of Cys are upregulated. In addition, rpoS and RpoS-regulated genes responding to various stresses and a number of genes responding to oxidative stress are upregulated.
