A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Eukaryotic-like Ser/Thr protein kinases (STPKs) are present in many bacterial species, where they control various physiological and virulence processes by enabling microbial adaptation to specific environmental signals. PknJ is the only member of the 11 STPKs identified in Mycobacterium tuberculosis that still awaits characterization. Here we report that PknJ is a functional kinase that forms dimers in vitro, and contains a single transmembrane domain. Using a high-density peptide-chip-based technology, multiple potential mycobacterial targets were identified for PknJ. We confirmed PknJ-dependent phosphorylation of four of these targets: PknJ itself, which autophosphorylates at Thr(168), Thr(171) and Thr(173) residues; the transcriptional regulator EmbR; the methyltransferase MmaA4/Hma involved in mycolic acid biosynthesis; and the dipeptidase PepE, whose encoding gene is located next to pknJ in the mycobacterial genome. Our results provide a number of candidate phospho-targets for PknJ and possibly other mycobacterial STPKs that could be studied to investigate the role of STPKs in M. tuberculosis physiology and virulence.
