Modelling of the general stress response activation cascade of sigB in B. subtilis in response to starvation.
Modelling carbon core metabolism in Bacillus subtilis – Exploring the contribution of protein complexes in core carbon and nitrogen metabolism.
Bacillus subtilis is a prime model organism for systems biology approaches because it is one of the most advanced models for functional genomics. Furthermore, comprehensive information on cell and molecular biology, physiology and genetics is available and the European Bacillus community (BACELL) has a well-established reputation for applying
The objective of this project is an integrated understanding the metabolic, proteomic and genetic network that controls the transition from growth to glucose starvation. This transition is a fundamental ecophysiological response that serves as a scientific model for environmental signal integration and is pivotal for industrial fermentations of Bacillus that occur predominantly under nutrient starvation.

In this kind of studies sigmaB stress response is induced by the addition of artificial inducers of sigmaB. For example simgaB is downstream of a Pspac promoter and induced by the addition of IPTG.
A ctc::lacZ reporter gene is used to monitor sigmaB activity.

We use BSA115 strain which lacks RsbU and RsbW proteins. Therefore, there is limited post-transcriptional regulation of sigmaB activity.
There occurs an unexpected drop in the beta-Gal activity after sigB induction. This modelling effort aims to clarify the reasons.
