Background: Borrelia burgdorferi controls protein production during its infectious cycle. Results: Bpur was identified and shown to enhance effects of the erp transcriptional repressor, BpaB. Details of Bpur-nucleic acid interactions were obtained. Conclusion: Bpur participates in regulation of protein expression. Significance:Anew bacterial regulatory factor was identified and insight garnered on mechanisms by which Bpur interacts with nucleic acids.
