BssS increases Mtr expression and indole import; BssS decreases AcrEF expression and indole export (Domka, 2006). bssS is specifically induced during mature biofilm formation (if the F plasmid is present), but is not induced in stationary phase; mutants have normal early biofilm adhesion as assayed in mictotiter plate assay but have reduced mature biofilm formation (in contrast to later work) (Beloin, 2004). bssS(yceP) is induced three hours after cold shock in a pnp-dependent manner (Polissi, 2003). YhaJ binds and activates promoters for yqjF, ybiJ, yhaK, ygiD, yhhW, as well as bssS(yceP) to a lesser degree; these YhaJ-regulated genes are proposed to constitute a novel quinol-like compound degradation regulon (Palevsky, 2016).
