Purification, crystallization and preliminary X-ray analysis of FliT, a bacterial flagellar substrate-specific export chaperone.

ABSTRACT: The assembly process of the bacterial flagellum is coupled to flagellar gene expression. FliT acts not only as a flagellar type III substrate-specific export chaperone for the filament-capping protein FliD but also as a negative regulator that suppresses flagellar gene expression through its specific interaction with the master regulator FlhD(4)C(2) complex. In this study, FliT of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium was expressed, purified and crystallized. Crystals of SeMet FliT were obtained by the sitting-drop vapour-diffusion technique with potassium/sodium tartrate as the precipitant. The crystals grew in the trigonal space group P3(1)21 or P3(2)21 and diffracted to 3.2 A resolution. The anomalous difference Patterson map of the SeMet FliT crystal showed significant peaks in its Harker sections, indicating the usefulness of the derivative data for structure determination.
