Although the signal sensing protein PII is well known to play a central role in bacterial nitrogen metabolism, the structure and function of PII in plants remains only partially understood. Comparative modeling was undertaken based on the high degree of amino acid identity between Escherichia coli and Arabidopsis PII. The mature Arabidopsis PII predicted structure superimposes very well onto the E. coli PII structure (Calpha root mean square deviation < 0.4 A). The model of the highly conserved… CONTINUE READING
