Structure, function and FliM interaction studies of CheY6 in Rhodobacter sphaeroides

Abstract:

Bacteria control their swimming direction by signalling from chemoreceptors via a small protein, CheY, to the rotary flagellar motor. Rhodobacter sphaeroides has a complex chemosensory network with two pathways, including three different CheYs controlling a stop-start motor. Deletions of these cheYs result in a non-chemotactic phenotype. CheY6 is essential for chemotaxis, whereas CheY3 and CheY4 have some functional redundancies. Although Ch...
