Identification of methylation sites in Rhodobacter chemoreceptors

Abstract:

Chemotaxis in Rhodobacter sphaeroides occurs through the alteration of the level of rotational switching of its flagellum. The presence of attractants and repellents are sensed by methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins (MCPs). The reversible methylation of certain glutamate residues in the methylation helices of MCPs is important in the adaptation aspect of chemotaxis. Previously established consensus methylation sites in other organisms were used for searches in the sequences of R. sphaeroides...
