Two interlinked quorum sensing circuits, las and rhl, which control pathogenesis of Pseudomonas aeruginosa are further modulated by numerous regulators, including VqsR (virulence and quorum sensing regulator). High-density oligonucleotide microarrays were used to compare the global expression profile of a wild-type and VqsR mutant in ABC minimal medium. The expression of a large group of metabolic genes, ECF sigma factors as well as of many quorum-sensing genes previously not assigned to VqsR-regulon was found to be affected by the disruption of vqsR. © 2004 Federation of European Microbiological Societies.
