In my article (3), I have stated that the phosphotransferring state is the most active state of Spo0F and the solution structure of Spo0F:BeF3 is unlikely to be a good model for the phosphorylated state. In their article, Wemmer and Kern (4) state that they expect the conformational changes induced by BeF3 on Spo0F to be very similar to those caused by… (More)
