Formation of a Distinctive Complex between the Inducible Bacterial Lysine Decarboxylase and a Novel AAA+ ATPase*
It is demonstrated that RavA interacts strongly with inducible lysine decarboxylase (LDCI or CadA) forming a large cage-like structure consisting of two LdcI decamers linked by a maximum of five RavA oligomers, and data obtained suggest that the RavA-LdcI interaction may be important for the regulation of RavA activity against its targets.
