原始语种摘要: We recently introduced a physically based approach to sequence comparison, the property factor method (PFM). In the present work, we apply the PFM approach to the study of a challenging set of sequences—the bacterial chemotaxis protein CheY, the N-terminal receiver domain of the nitrogen regulation protein NT-NtrC, and the sporulation response regulator Spo0F. These are all response regulators involved in signal transduction. Despite functional similarity and structural homology, they exhibit low sequence identity. PFM sequence comparison demonstrates a statistically significant qualitative difference between the sequence of CheY and those of the other two proteins that is not found using conventional alignment methods. This difference is shown to be consonant with structural...
