    Description: Riboswitches are ligand-binding elements contained within the 5' untranslated regions of bacterial transcripts, which generally regulate expression of downstream open reading frames. Here, we show that in Listeria monocytogenes, a riboswitch that binds vitamin B12 controls expression of a noncoding regulatory RNA, Rli55. Rli55, in turn, controls expression of the eut genes, whose products enable ethanolamine utilization and require B12 as a cofactor. Defects in ethanolamine utilization, or in its regulation by Rli55, significantly attenuate Listeria virulence in mice. Rli55 functions by sequestering the two-component response regulator EutV by means of a EutV-binding site contained within the RNA. Thus, Rli55 is a riboswitch-regulated member of the small group of regulatory RNAs that function by sequestering a protein and reveals a distinctive mechanism of signal integration in bacterial gene regulation.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Mellin, J R -- Koutero, Mikael -- Dar, Daniel -- Nahori, Marie-Anne -- Sorek, Rotem -- Cossart, Pascale -- Howard Hughes Medical Institute/ -- New York, N.Y. -- Science. 2014 Aug 22;345(6199):940-3. doi: 10.1126/science.1255083.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Author address: 〈/span〉Unite des Interactions Bacteries-Cellules, Institut Pasteur, F-75015 Paris, France.

    Description: Riboswitches and attenuators are cis-regulatory RNA elements, most of which control bacterial gene expression via metabolite-mediated, premature transcription termination. We developed an unbiased experimental approach for genome-wide discovery of such ribo-regulators in bacteria. We also devised an experimental platform that quantitatively measures the in vivo activity of all such regulators in parallel and enables rapid screening for ribo-regulators that respond to metabolites of choice. Using this approach, we detected numerous antibiotic-responsive ribo-regulators that control antibiotic resistance genes in pathogens and in the human microbiome. Studying one such regulator in Listeria monocytogenes revealed an attenuation mechanism mediated by antibiotic-stalled ribosomes. Our results expose broad roles for conditional termination in regulating antibiotic resistance and provide a tool for discovering riboswitches and attenuators that respond to previously unknown ligands.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Dar, Daniel -- Shamir, Maya -- Mellin, J R -- Koutero, Mikael -- Stern-Ginossar, Noam -- Cossart, Pascale -- Sorek, Rotem -- New York, N.Y. -- Science. 2016 Apr 8;352(6282):aad9822. doi: 10.1126/science.aad9822.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Author address: 〈/span〉Department of Molecular Genetics, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot 76100, Israel. ; Institut Pasteur, Unite des Interactions Bacteries-Cellules, Paris, F-75015 France.
