The new signal transduction system, the TolR protein is involved in the resistance to toxic aromatic compounds as toluene in a bacterium, Azoarcus sp. CIB, able to degrade these compounds anaerobically
The assembly switch of cell division protein FtsZ demonstrated: a subunit structural change that can be modulated with small antibacterial molecules
27 Oct 2016
FtsZ is a widely conserved tubulin-like GTPase that directs bacterial cell division. This protein assembly machine works cooperatively polymerizing into single-stranded filaments, by means of self-switching between inactive and actively associating monomer conformations.
