The complex bhsA mutant phenotype includes sensitivity to acid, heat, hydrogen peroxide, and cadmium, as well as 5-fold increased biofilm in the presence of glucose, increased cell surface hydrophobicity, and increased aggregation; the mutant phenotype of enhanced biofilm formation upon stress is suppressed by exogenous indole or by a tnaA mutation (Zhang, 2007). Induced during biofilm formation. Crp regulon. Probable periplasmic protein. The first 22 aa of BhsA are predicted to be a type I signal peptide.
