Welcome! If you are familiar with the subject of this article, you can contribute to this open access knowledge base by deleting incorrect information, restructuring or completely rewriting any text. Read more.

Disease relevance of cheY

  • Characterization of the cheY genes from Leptospira interrogans and their effects on the behavior of Escherichia coli [1].
  • The thermal stability of the bacterial chemotaxis protein CheY from Salmonella typhimurium has been examined by thermal denaturation at pH 7.0 in the presence of guanidine-HCl and urea [2].

High impact information on cheY


Biological context of cheY

  • These are the first examples of cheY mutations that reduce sensitivity to the phosphatase activity of CheZ without being altered in terms of their intrinsic phosphorylation and autodephosphorylation rates [7].
