Diagram of BsaN regulon. The BsaN regulon is shown as part of a regulatory network, which is superseded by BprP activating transcriptions of T3SS3 apparatus genes (blue) including bsaN. The bicA gene is likely initially transcribed via read through of apparatus genes. BsaN-BicA function as a complex to activate T3SS3 translocon (purple), effector (yellow), accessory (grey) and regulatory (red) genes. Transcriptional activation is indicated by green arrows. BsaN-BicA also activate virAG, which in turn activates the bimA motility genes and the T6SS1 locus. BprC activates the T6SS1 tssAB apparatus genes. BsaN-BicA also activate a non-ribosomal polyketide synthesis locus and several metabolic genes. BsaN-repressed genes as indicated by red, blunted lines include T3SS3 apparatus genes and flagellar motility genes. Only genes which have been validated by qRT-PCR are shown.
