    Jonathan W Willett
    Department of Microbiology, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, USA
    PLoS Genet 8:e1003084. 2012
    ..These data are consistent with conserved mechanisms for kinase and phosphatase activities in the broadly occurring HisKA family of sensor kinases in bacteria...
  2. pmc Specificity residues determine binding affinity for two-component signal transduction systems
    Jonathan W Willett
    Department of Microbiology
    MBio 4:e00420-13. 2013
    ..The data indicate that binding affinity is a critical parameter governing system-wide signaling fidelity for bacterial signal transduction proteins...

    John R Kirby
    Department of Microbiology, University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa 52242, USA
    Annu Rev Microbiol 63:45-59. 2009
    ..Extensive research has provided a perspective on TCS signaling and indicates that variation and diversity for the standard two-component system are predominant in the microbial world...
