Signal transduction histidine kinase RcsC, alpha-beta loop, C-terminal (IPR019017)

Short name: Sig_transdc_His_kin_a/b-loop_C

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



This domain is found in the C terminus of the signal transduction response regulator (phospho-relay) kinase RcsC, between the ATP-binding region (IPR003594) and the receiver region (IPR001789). This domain forms a discrete alpha/beta/loop structure [PMID: 17005198]. The Rcs signalling pathway controls a variety of physiological functions like capsule synthesis, cell division or motility in prokaryotes. The Rcs regulation cascade, involving a multi-step phosphorelay between the two membrane-bound hybrid sensor kinases RcsC and RcsD and the global regulator RcsB, is, up to now, one of the most complicated regulatory systems in bacteria [PMID: 17005198].
