Abstract:The maltodextrin binding protein from Escherichia coli serves as the initial receptor for both the active transport of and chemotaxis toward a range of linear maltose sugars. The X-ray structures of both the maltose-bound and sugar-free forms of the protein have been previously described [Spurlino, J. C., Lu, G.-Y., & Quiocho, F. A. (1991) J. Biol. Chem. 266, 5202-5219; Sharff, A. J., Rodseth, L. E., Spurlino, J. C., & Quocho, F. A. (1992) Biochemistry 31, 10657-10663]. The X-ray crystal structure of the malto…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
