The structure, function and specificity of the Rhodobacter sphaeroides membrane-associated chemotaxis array

Abstract:

Bacterial chemotaxis is the movement of bacteria towards or away from chemical stimuli in the surrounding media. Bacteria respond to chemotactic signals through chemoreceptors which bind specific ligands and transduce signals through a modified two-component system. Typical chemoreceptors bind a ligand in the periplasm and signal across the inner membrane to the cytoplasmic chemosensory array through the inner membrane. Bacterial chemoreceptors must integrate multiple signals within an arr...
