A lon bluR(ycgE) double mutant is multidrug resistant and has lowered ompF (Duval, 2009). BluR(YcgE) has a MerR-like HTH DNA binding domain. BluR(YcgE) and its blue light-responsive anti-represssor BluF(YcgF) control a regulon of eight small proteins, including the RcsBCD activators YmgAB (Tschowri, 2009).
