High impact information on pilR

  • PilR was overproduced by fusing pilR to the gene for the maltose-binding protein (malE), yielding a MalE-PilR hybrid protein [1].
  • The plasmid with the malE-pilR fusion, when introduced into a non-piliated pilR mutant strain of P. aeruginosa, restored piliation, indicating that the hybrid protein retains PilR function in vivo [1].
  • Integral membrane proteins required for bacterial motility and chemotaxis [2].
