Abstract:

Two-component systems are signal-transducing ATPases that use energy released from ATP hydrolysis to effect responses to changing environmental conditions. The phosphorylated aspartate is contained within another type of protein termed a response regulator, which undergoes a phosphorylation-induced conformational change that serves to elicit a response. The histidine kinase domain is invariably flanked by sequences that are not conserved within the family and supply specific regulatory functions. The essential features are kinase dimerization, nucleotide binding, and histidine phosphorylation. A proton donor would also be expected to facilitate the transfer reaction from acyl phosphates through general acid catalysis. There are two ways in which the kinases modulate the rate of response regulator phosphorylation. First, the rate of histidine phosphorylation controls the availability of phosphodonor. This aspect of kinase function is an inherent feature of the kinase proteins, independent of the regulators. The second mechanism involves protein-protein contacts between the kinases and their cognate regulators that enhance the rate and determine the specificity of regulator phosphorylation. Many histidine kinases function to facilitate the rate of dephosphorylation of their cognate response regulators. Histidine kinases must bind the dephosphorylated form of the regulators and release the phosphorylated form. When the rate of histidine phosphorylation is high, the phosphotransfer reaction would predominate; when the rate of histidine phosphorylation is low, the dephosphorylation reaction would be favored.

FIGURE 1

Organization of sequence motifs in histidine kinases. Examples of different sequence organizations among representative members of the histidine kinase superfamily are shown with the corresponding total number of residues. Conserved sequences are indicated with the number of the first conserved residue given below. As described in the text and Fig. 2 , these are designated as H, N, D, F, and G boxes. Attached response regulator domains are indicated by open boxes, and hydrophobic sequences are indicated by closed boxes. Sequences were chosen from a library of more than 75 different histidine kinase homologs obtained from searching a variety of standard protein sequence data bases. For an extensive delineation of histidine kinase sequences, see .

FIGURE 2

Amino acid preference plot for the boxes of most conserved residues among members of the histidine protein kinase superfamily. A histogram of the relative occurrence of each amino acid is plotted against the number of the amino acid within the box, starting with the first signature amino acid (H, N, D, F, or G) designated as 0. The D and F boxes are generally contiguous except in CheA and FrzE, which have intervening inserts of 25 to 28 residues. Amino acid frequencies are derived from an analysis of 68 histidine kinases from GenEMBL and SwissProt data bases. Amino acids with less than 10% frequencies of occurrence at a given position are not shown. The pattern code is light, nonpolar (GAVLMIPFYW) and dark, polar (STCNQKRHDE).
