- ... Bacterial responses to phosphorus limitation, commonly inorganic phosphate (Pᵢ), are important survival mechanisms in a variety of environments. The two-component sensor kinase PhoR and its cognate response regulator PhoB are central to the Pᵢ limitation response of many bacteria and control the large Pho regulon. Limitation for Pᵢ significantly increased attachment and biofilm formation by the pl ...
