Chemotaxis is the process by which cells sense changes in their chemical environment and move towards more favorable conditions. In divergent species of bacteria, the chemotaxis proteins localize to the poles of the cell and information is transferred to the flagellar motors through the phosphorylation of a soluble protein CheY. Using mathematical models and computer simulation, we demonstrate that phosphatase localization controls the spatial distribution of CheY-P in the cytosol at steady… CONTINUE READING
