Protein namesi

  • Recommended name:
    Chemoreceptor glutamine deamidase CheD (EC:3.5.1.44)
  • Recommended name:
    Probable chemoreceptor glutamine deamidase CheD (EC:3.5.1.44)

Gene namei

  • Name:cheD

Catalytic activityi

  • Protein L-glutamine + H2O = protein L-glutamate + NH3.
  • Protein L-glutamine + H2O = protein L-glutamate + NH3.

Functioni

  • Deamidates glutamine residues to glutamate on methyl-accepting chemotaxis receptors (MCPs). CheD-mediated MCP deamidation is required for productive communication of the conformational signals of the chemoreceptors to the cheA kinase.
  • Probably deamidates glutamine residues to glutamate on methyl-accepting chemotaxis receptors (MCPs), playing an important role in chemotaxis.

Sequence similaritiesi

Subunit structurei

  • Forms a complex with CheC.
