The unique serine/threonine phosphatase from the minimal bacterium Mycoplasma synoviae: biochemical characterization and metal dependence


Serine/threonine protein phosphatases have been described in many pathogenic bacteria as essential enzymes involved in phosphorylation-dependent signal transduction pathways and frequently associated with the virulence of these organisms. An inspection of Mycoplasma synoviae genome revealed the presence of a gene (prpC) encoding a putative protein… (More)
