Transcription from the waaQ P1 promoter produces a 5' UTR of 140 nt (Clementz, 1992). The first 73 nt of the waaQ P1 5' UTR (140 nt) comprises the novel 5' UTR-processed sRNA RirA (RfaH interacting RNA) that increases rpoE P3 promoter activity when overexpressed, perhaps by titrating out RfaH and activating RpoE transcription via LPS defects (Klein, 2016).
