The third chemotaxis locus of Rhodobacter sphaeroides is essential for chemotaxis.

Abstract:

The purple photosynthetic bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides has three loci encoding multiple homologues of the bacterial chemosensory proteins: 13 putative chemoreceptors, four CheW, four CheA, six CheY, two CheB and three CheR. Previously, studies have shown that, although deletion of cheOp1 led to only minor changes in behaviour, deletion of cheOp2 led to a loss of taxis. The third locus encodes two CheA, one CheR, one CheB, one CheW, one CheY, a putative cytoplasmic chemoreceptor (TlpT) an...
