Description

GlgS (surface composition regulator) is a major determinant of cell surface composition. It negatively regulates motility, adhesion and synthesis of biofilm exopolysaccharides in Escherichia coli [PMID: 23537328]. The structure of the polypeptide chain comprises a bundle of two parallel amphipathic helices, alpha-1 and alpha-3, and a short hydrophobic helix alpha-2 sandwiched between them [PMID: 15161493].
