In this reaction the sensor kinase-phosphotransferase PhoQ autophosphorylates. Based on analogy to other sensor proteins the phosphorylation site is shown as a histidine residue.
Sensor kinase-phosphotransferase PhoQ is a member of the two-component regulatory system PhoQ/PhoP. In E. coli this system is believed to play a role in Mg++, or other divalent cation, starvation response. The PhoQ protein responds to low concentrations of extracellular divalent cations by autophosphorylating and activating the transcription regulator PhoP by transfer of the phosphate group.
