Abstract
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen of growing relevance for hospitalized patients and in particular in the development of cystic fibrosis. Complete genome sequences of several strains of P. aeruginosa have been sequenced in an effort to identify the genetic basis of the differences in virulence observed among strains. Interpretations of the results of comparative genomics rely on accurate and comparable annotations of genomic features across strains. To compare as accurately as possible the coding potential of different P. aeruginosa strains, we used a hybrid approach combining computational and experimental analyses. Potential coding regions were identified in all strains combining the results of four popular computational gene prediction methods with evolutionary conservation analysis and our recently-developed approach for computational ?frame-analysis?, based on the identification of sequence segments with statistically significant 3-base compositional periodicity indicative of the presence of codon structures. Furthermore, we experimentally identified on a transcriptomic scale coding regions actively undergoing translation in the reference strain P. aeruginosa PAO1, using the recently developed technique of ribosome profiling. This analysis was repeated in control growth and in conditions of oxidative stress, which is relevant to the infection of the cystic fibrotic lung. These analyses allowed us to identify several genes whose distribution across strains was not reflected by published annotations. By ribosome profiling in P. aeruginosa PAO1 we also identified genes that could not be predicted computationally and precisely defined the position of the start-of-translation of several genes. Furthermore, we characterized changes in patterns of translation related to oxidative stress. Our analyses significantly enhance our understanding of the coding potential of the different strains of P. aeruginosa and provide for the first time information on the regulation of translation in environmental conditions relevant to the interaction with the human host.
