Signal transduction in the archaeon Halobacterium salinarium is mediated by a family of 13 soluble and membrane-bound transducers. Here, we report the primary structure and functional analysis of one of the smallest halobacterial putative transducers, HtrXI. Hydropathy plot analysis of the primary structure predicts no membrane-spanning segments in HtrXI. The fractionation of the H. salinarium proteins confirmed that HtrXI is a soluble protein. Capillary assay with an HtrXI deletion mutant and… CONTINUE READING
