The effect of mutation in rpoS gene encoding sigma S subunit of RNA-polymerase on the capacity of Pseudomonas chlororaphis 449 to assimilate nitrogen was investigated. It has been shown that mutant cells with knocked-out rpoS gene had significantly lower capacity to utilize the nitrogen sources such as alanine, proline, histidine, arginine, urea, and ammonium and glutamine synthetase was downregulated in their cell free extracts. Both defects were abolished by glutamine supplementation to the medium. It is suggested that in Pseudomonas chlororaphis the association of the nitrogen control system and the system of gene expression is regulated by RNA-polymerase sigma S subunit, which can be responsible for cell adaptation at nitrogen supply limitation.
