The signal specificity and structure of sensor-activator proteins from different species (NodD of Rhizobium bacteria and vertebrate nuclear receptors) were compared. Several compounds (including flavonoids, coumestrol and estradiol) that bind to mammalian receptors also interact with NodD proteins. NodD-dependent synergism of the signal compounds luteolin and catechin was observed suggesting that these compounds bind directly to NodD. Two regions comprising 63 and 37 amino acids in NodD showed… CONTINUE READING
