The X-ray structure of the periplasmic glucose/galactose receptor (binding protein) of Salmonella typhimurium has been solved by the method of multiple isomorphous replacement and refined to a resolution of 2.4 A with an R-factor of 15.8%. The protein consists of two highly-similar structural domains with a bound sugar molecule trapped between. A combined sequence/structural approach is used to compare the structure of this protein to a similar arabinose receptor. The new sequence alignment… CONTINUE READING
