AbstractAutophosphorylation of histidine kinases (HK) is the first step for signal transduction in bacterial two-component signalling systems. As HKs dimerize, the His residue is phosphorylated in cis or trans depending on whether the ATP molecule used in the reaction is bound to the same or the neighboring subunit, respectively. The cis or trans autophosphorylation results from an alternative directionality in the connection between helices α1 and α2 in the HK DHp domain, in such a way that α2 could be oriented almost 90° counterclockwise or clockwise with respect to α1. Sequence and length variability of this connection appears to lie behind the different directionality and is implicated in partner recognition with the response regulator (RR), highlighting its importance in signal transduction. Despite this mechanistic difference, HK autophosphorylation appears to be universal, involving conserved residues neighboring the phosphoacceptor His residue. Herein, we describe a simple protocol to determine both autophosphorylation directionality of HKs and the roles of the catalytic residues in these protein kinases.
