    ..Our results support a model for signal transduction in NifL, whereby redox-dependent conformational changes in PAS1 are relayed to the C-terminal domains via changes in the quaternary structure of the PAS2 domain. ..
  5. Stentz R, Wegmann U, Parker M, Bongaerts R, Lesaint L, Gasson M, et al. CsiA is a bacterial cell wall synthesis inhibitor contributing to DNA translocation through the cell envelope. Mol Microbiol. 2009;72:779-94 pubmed publisher
    ..Our results strongly suggest that CsiA sequesters the peptidoglycan precursor and prevents the final stage of cell wall biosynthesis to enable the localized assembly of the DNA transfer machinery through the cell wall. ..
  6. Jones G, Paget M, Chamberlin L, Buttner M. Sigma-E is required for the production of the antibiotic actinomycin in Streptomyces antibioticus. Mol Microbiol. 1997;23:169-78 pubmed

    ..Finally, and in contrast to studies with other MMPs, MMP-19 catalytic domain was not able to activate any of the latent MMPs tested in vitro. ..
  8. Dalmay T, Hamilton A, Rudd S, Angell S, Baulcombe D. An RNA-dependent RNA polymerase gene in Arabidopsis is required for posttranscriptional gene silencing mediated by a transgene but not by a virus. Cell. 2000;101:543-53 pubmed
    ..According to this idea, when a virus induces posttranscriptional gene silencing, the virus-encoded RNA polymerase would produce the double-stranded RNA and SDE1 would be redundant. ..
  9. Molle V, Buttner M. Different alleles of the response regulator gene bldM arrest Streptomyces coelicolor development at distinct stages. Mol Microbiol. 2000;36:1265-78 pubmed
    ..bldM was not phosphorylated in vitro with either of the small-molecule phosphodonors acetyl phosphate or carbamoyl phosphate under conditions in which a control response regulator protein, NtrC, was labelled efficiently...
