Figure 2. Conformational change induced by phosphorylation of the FixJ receiver domain.

involving strand P2 of the FixJ receiver domain. Therefore, the FixJ receiver domain appears to be much more than a simple molecular switch, since it acts as a transcriptional activator domain at the fixK promoter. This example illustrates the formidable functional plasticity of receiver domains.
