Two-component regulatory systems (2CRSs) are key players in bacterial responses to changing environments ( ). These systems act to integrate multiple stimuli into coordinated changes in global gene expression. Bacteria normally possess many 2CRSs which respond to specific signals and allow adaptive responses ( ).
