Abstract

N-Lysine acetylation is a dynamic, reversible and regulatory post-translational modification (PTM) in prokaryotes, which integrates and coordinates metabolisms responding to environmental clues. However, the molecular mechanism underlying the signalling pathway from nutrient sensing to protein acetylation remains incompletely understood in micro-organisms. Here we found that global nitrogen regulator GlnR directly controls transcription of genes encoding lysine deacetylases in Actinobacteria. Electrophoretic mobility shift assays and real-time PCR (RT-PCR) in three Actinobacteria species (Saccharopolyspora erythraea, Streptomyces coelicolor and Mycobacterium smegmatis) revealed that GlnR regulator protein is able to interact with the promoter regions of these genes and activate their transcription. Furthermore, it was demonstrated that cellular acetylation status (acetylome) is modulated by extracellular nitrogen availability. Our results present an example of the novel complete signal transduction mechanism of regulating protein deacetylation through a nutrient-sensing pleiotropic regulator in response to nutrient availability.
