GlnK proteins belong to the PII superfamily of signal transduction proteins and are involved in the regulation of nitrogen metabolism. These proteins are normally encoded in an operon together with the structural gene for the ammonium transporter AmtB. Haloferax mediterranei possesses two genes encoding for GlnK, specifically, glnK(1) and glnK(2). The present study marks the first investigation of PII proteins in haloarchaea, and provides evidence for the direct interaction between glutamine… CONTINUE READING
