Exploring the (almost) unknown: archaeal two-component systems.

Tino Krell
Two-component systems (TCS) exist in bacteria and archaea. In contrast to bacterial TCSs little information is available on their archaeal counterparts. In this issue Galperin and coworkers present a bioinformatics analysis of TCS genes from archaeal genome sequences. This study identified different aspects in which bacterial and archaeal TCS mediated signaling differ and forms a sound basis for the experimental design of studies to increase our knowledge on this poorly investigated protein family.
