MeSH headings : Archaeal Proteins / genetics; Archaeal Proteins / metabolism; Bacterial Toxins / genetics; Bacterial Toxins / metabolism; Gene Expression Regulation, Bacterial / physiology; RNA Stability / physiology; Sulfolobaceae / genetics; Sulfolobaceae / growth & development; Sulfolobaceae / metabolism; Transcriptome; Uranium / metabolism
TL;DR: M. prunae utilizes VapC toxins for post-transcriptional regulation under uranium stress to enter a cellular dormant state, thereby providing an adaptive response to what would otherwise be a deleterious environmental perturbation. (via Semantic Scholar)
