Summary: CheD chemotactic sensory transduction
CheD chemotactic sensory transduction Provide feedback
This chemotaxis protein stimulates methylation of MCP proteins . The chemotaxis machinery of Bacillus subtilis is similar to that of the well characterised system of Escherichia coli. However, B. subtilis contains several chemotaxis genes not found in the E. coli genome, such as CheC and CheD, indicating that the B. subtilis chemotactic system is more complex. CheD plays an important role in chemotactic sensory transduction for many organisms. CheD deamidates other B. subtilis chemoreceptors including McpB and McpC. Deamidation by CheD is required for B. subtilis chemoreceptors to effectively transduce signals to the CheA kinase . The structure of a complex between the signal-terminating phosphatase, CheC, and the receptor-modifying deamidase, CheD, reveals how CheC mimics receptor substrates to inhibit CheD and how CheD stimulates CheC phosphatase activity. CheD resembles other cysteine deamidases from bacterial pathogens that inactivate host Rho-GTPases. Phospho-CheY, the intracellular signal and CheC target, stabilises the CheC-CheD complex and reduces availability of CheD . A model is proposed whereby CheC acts as a CheY-P-induced regulator of CheD; CheY-P would cause CheC to sequester CheD from the chemoreceptors, inducing adaptation of the chemotaxis system .

CheD deamidates glutamine residues to glutamate on methyl-accepting chemotaxis receptors (MCPs). CheD-mediated MCP deamidation is required for productive communication of the conformational signals of the chemoreceptors to the cheA kinase [PUBMED:17908686]. CheC is a CheY-P phosphatase (CheY controls flagellar rotation and is activated by phosphorylation). The activity of CheC is enhanced by its interaction with CheD, forming a CheC-CheD heterodimer. It is suggested that CheC exerts its effect on MCP methylation in Bacillus subtilis by controlling the binding of CheD to the MCPs [PUBMED:8866475].

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request

There are 2 interactions for this family. More...
We determine these interactions using iPfam, which considers the interactions between residues in three-dimensional protein structures and maps those interactions back to Pfam families. You can find more information about the iPfam algorithm in the journal article that accompanies the website.
For those sequences which have a structure in the Protein DataBank, we use the mapping between UniProt, PDB and Pfam coordinate systems from the PDBe group, to allow us to map Pfam domains onto UniProt sequences and three-dimensional protein structures. The table below shows the structures on which the CheD domain has been found. There are 2 instances of this domain found in the PDB. Note that there may be multiple copies of the domain in a single PDB structure, since many structures contain multiple copies of the same protein seqence.
