Structural studies of chemotaxis in prokaryotes and higher eukaryotes

Abstract:

Chemotaxis, the ability of a cell to change its motility as a response to environmental stimuli, belongs to the most important signal transduction mechanisms in life. Evolution has created a plethora of different molecular mechanisms to enable cells to react appropriately to extracellular changes. In this thesis, chemotactic signal transduction pathways in bacteria, in particular two component signalling in R. sphaeroides, and eukaryotes, in particular human axon guidance, are stu...
