Bacteria respond to fluctuations in the concentrations of
various solutes in their environment by modulating the ex-
pression of specific sets of genes. In response to changes
in medium osmolarity, for example, Escherichia coli cells
change the levels of the outer-membrane porin proteins
OmpC and OmpF in a reciprocal manner; in response to
nitrogen or phosphate limitation, the cells synthesize pro-
