Sensory complexes in bacterial chemotaxis are organized in large clusters, building complex signal-processing machinery. Interactions among chemoreceptors are the main determinant of cluster formation and create an allosteric network that is able to integrate and amplify stimuli, before transmitting the signal to downstream proteins. Association of the other proteins with the receptor cluster creates a signalling scaffold, which enhances the efficiency and specificity of the pathway. Clusters… CONTINUE READING
