The Importance of the Interaction of CheD with CheC and the Chemoreceptors Compared to Its Enzymatic Activity during Chemotaxis in Bacillus subtilis


Bacillus subtilis use three systems for adaptation during chemotaxis. One of these systems involves two interacting proteins, CheC and CheD. CheD binds to the receptors and increases their ability to activate the CheA kinase. CheD also binds CheC, and the strength of this interaction is increased by phosphorylated CheY. CheC is believed to control the… (More)
