Microarray analysis of the C. glutamicum RES167 strain compared with its Δ rshA mutant DN2. Ratio/intensity plot obtained from the DNA microarray comparing the transcriptomes of RES167 and DN2 is shown. Total RNA was isolated from two biological replicates grown in minimal CGXII medium to the exponential phase and used for hybridization. Genes with increased amounts of mRNA in the ΔrshA strain have positive ratios, while genes with a higher mRNA amount in the RES167 strain have negative ratios, indicated with green diamonds (upregulated) or red triangles (downregulated) respectively; those not exhibiting differential expression are indicated with grey spots. M values of higher than +0.6 or lower than −0.6 (corresponding to fold changes of 1.52 and 0.66, respectively) were considered to be significant. The relevant genes are indicated by their names or desigations from the C. glutamicum genome sequence (GenBank NC_006958), underlined genes were previously described as SigH-dependent.
