Poster #38: Ana Rowe – Suppression of Chemoreceptor Signal-Switching Defects

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: John Parkinson

The proposed project involves isolation and characterization of second-site mutations that are able to rescue the chemotactic ability of damaging mutations at the hairpin tip. Such suppressors presumably enable mutant receptors to undergo the conformational changes involved in serine sensing and signaling. By analyzing these suppressor mutations, it will be possible to identify structural features important for receptor signaling.
