Interactions between protein components of the chemotaxis mechanism in Escherichia coli were investigated by using the cleavable cross-linking reagent, dithiobis(succinimidyl propionate). Two methods were used to allow detection of chemotaxis-specific proteins in intact cells. The first method was to program their synthesis in the presence of [35S]methionine using lambda E. coli hybrid phages which carry the chemotaxis genes. The second method was to label endogenous methyl-accepting chemotaxis… CONTINUE READING
