Interaction between Pph and the chemotactic protein Rc-CheW. a The binding of the histidine kinase domain Pph and CheW was analyzed in pull-down assays. R. centenaria 6his-Rc-CheW was expressed in E. coli C41 cells and purified. The Pph protein was translated in vitro in the presence of [35S]-methionine (lane 1 and 4). Rc-CheW was added (50 μg) to the reaction and incubated at 37 °C. The sample was applied to a Cu-Sepharose column and after washing the bound complexes were eluted (lanes 3 and 6). The fractions were analysed by phosphorimaging. The in vitro translating protein extracts are shown in lanes 1 and 4, the final wash steps in lanes 2 and 5 and the elution fractions in lanes 3 and 6, respectively. The co-elution rate was calculated and is indicated. The positions of molecular weight markers are indicated. b The binding of the Pph protein and Rc-CheW was analysed in the presence of ATP. The Pph protein was translated and Rc-CheW was added as described in (A). ATP or apyrase was added to each reaction as indicated and the samples were analysed as described in (A). The co-elution rate was calculated and is indicated in % as bound Pph protein
