Proteins that have a structure similar to those of LuxR and FixJ comprise a large subfamily of transcriptional activator proteins. Most members of the LuxR-FixJ family contain a similar amino-terminal receiver domain linked by a small region to a carboxy-terminal domain that contains an amino acid sequence similar to the helix-turn-helix (HTH) motif found in other DNA-binding proteins. GerE from Bacillus subtilis is the smallest member of the LuxR-FixJ family. Its 74-amino-acid sequence is… CONTINUE READING
