dc.description.abstract Chemoreceptors in Escherichia coli control the activity of a kinase that phosphorylates a response regulator that, in turn, biases the direction of rotation of flagellar motors, affecting the manner in which cells swim. A small change in receptor occupancy induces a large change in kinase activity. This gain is generated by allosteric interactions between receptors, which are arranged in clusters. The idea that such amplification might occur was advanced by [Bray et al., 1998] and [Bray, 2002]. en_US
