Identification of Yersinia pestis Pigment Receptor
In the present work the PR of Y. pestis was identified as a complex of a 17 kDa protein associated with two oppositely charged low molecular weight components that cooperatively form a pigment binding domain of PR. The pigment binding activity of PR is dependent on an appropriate proportion of the low molecular weight components and on the absence of the pigmentation inhibitor.
