    ..The mechanism of chemo- and phototactic signal transduction in the Archaeon H.salinarium, therefore, is similar to the two-component signaling system known from chemotaxis in the eubacterium E.coli...

    ..Secondly, we propose a hypothetical feedback loop from the response regulator to Htr methylation made from the CheC proteins, CheD and CheB, which might contribute to adaptation analogous to the CheC/CheD system of B. subtilis. ..

    ..This indicates that CheAH.s. plays a crucial role in chemical and light signal integration, presumably interacting with at least two phototransducers and a number of chemoreceptors...

    ..These results are compared with the corresponding deletion strains in Escherichia coli and provide new insights into the eu- and archeabacterial flagellar switch. ..
