Abstract

Two-component and phosphorelay signal transduction systems are the major means by which bacteria recognize and respond to a variety of environmental stimuli. Recent results have implicated these systems in the regulation of a variety of essential processes including cell-cycle progression, pathogenicity, and developmental pathways. Elucidation of the structures of the interacting domains is leading to an understanding of the mechanisms of molecular recognition and phosphotransfer in these systems.
