The genus Sulfolobus includes microorganisms belonging to the domain Archaea, sub-kingdom Crenarchaeota, living in geographically distant acidic hot springs. Their adaptation to such particular habitats requires finely regulated mechanisms of gene expression, among which, those modulated by sequence-specific transcription factors (TFs) play a key role. In this review, we summarize the current knowledge on the repertoires of TFs found in Sulfolobus spp. and their viruses, focusing on the description of their DNA-binding domains and their structure-function relationship.

Abstract

The genus Sulfolobus includes microorganisms belonging to the domain Archaea, sub-kingdom Crenarchaeota, living in geographically distant acidic hot springs. Their adaptation to such particular habitats requires finely regulated mechanisms of gene expression, among which, those modulated by sequence-specific transcription factors (TFs) play a key role. In this review, we summarize the current knowledge on the repertoires of TFs found in Sulfolobus spp. and their viruses, focusing on the description of their DNA-binding domains and their structure-function relationship.
