Function and Control of the Spx-Family of Proteins Within the Bacterial Stress Response
Over the past decade, accumulated evidence has implicated the Spx family of proteins as major participants in the stress response of Gram positive bacteria. The involvement of the Spx family members in virulence and global regulatory circuits operating in pathogens amplifies their future importance in the study of bacterial infectious disease.
