Study Finds Molecular Switch That Triggers Bacterial PathogenicityExternal link

Using an array of high-powered X-ray imaging techniques, researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) showed that histone-like proteins that bind to DNA are related to the physical twisting of the genetic strand, and that the supercoiling of the chromosome can trigger the expression of genes that make a microbe invasive.
