Les régulateurs transcriptionnels Rgg de Streptococcus thermophilus LMG18311 : étude du rôle de la protéine Rgg0182

Abstract : This thesis aims to characterize the rgg genes of S. thermophilus LMG18311 coding transcriptional regulator and their involvement in environmental adaptation. This work shows that rgg0182 gene encodes a transcriptional regulator controlling the transcription of its flanking genes. The Rgg0182/Shp0182 pair could be involved in a quorum sensing mechanism. This work also demonstrates that the Rgg0182 protein is involved in S. thermophilus tolerance to heat stresses. In addition, the mutant delta rgg0182 cells exhibit a thermo-induced adhesion phenotype via hydrophobic interactions. Analyses by atomic force microscopy of LMG18311 cells of the wildtype and its derivative rgg0182 mutant reveal the presence of polymers only on the surface of the wild-type strain, suggesting that the protein Rgg0182 would regulate the expression of surface proteins and proteins of cell division. A proteomic study coupled with transcriptomic analysis led to the identification of several targets of Rgg0182 involving in various biological functions. The data obtained in this work have shown that the S. thermophilus LMG18311 rgg0182 genes encodes a global regulator of gene expression. Furthermore, transcriptional analyses, in different growth conditions, of the 7 rgg genes present in the genome of S. thermophilus LMG18311 showed that they display different expression profiles that are modulated by environmental conditions. This suggests that these genes would be required in distinct growth conditions. These data raise the hypothesis that Rgg proteins participate in the fine and complex regulation of S. thermophilus gene expression
