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…
