Abstract : The clpP genes are widespread among living organisms and encode the proteolytic subunit of the Clp ATP-dependent protease. These genes are present in a single copy in most eubacteria. However, five clpP genes were identified in Streptomyces coelicolor. The clpP1 clpP2 operon was studied: mutations affected the growth cycle in various Streptomyces. Here, we report studies of the expression of the clpP3 clpP4 operon in Streptomyces lividans. The clpP3 operon was induced in a clpP1 mutant strain, and the regulation of expression was investigated in detail. The product of the putative regulator gene, downstream from clpP4, was purified. Gel migration shift assays and DNase I footprinting showed that this protein binds to the clpP3 promoter and recognizes a tandem 6 bp palindromic repeat (TCTGCC-3N-GGCAGA). In vivo, this DNA-binding protein, named PopR, acts as an activator of the clpP3 operon. Studies of popR expression indicate that the regulator is probably controlled at the post-transcriptional level.
