Structure and distribution of the phosphoprotein phosphatase genes, prpA and prpB, among Shigella subgroups.


Phosphoprotein phosphatases encoded by the prpA and prpB genes function in signal transduction pathways for degradation of misfolded proteins in the extracytoplasmic compartments of Escherichia coli. In order to trace the evolution of prp genes and assess their roles in other enteric pathogens, the structure and distribution of these genes among closely… (More)
