    Recent paradigm shifting discoveries have demonstrated that bacterial signaling kinases engage in unexpected regulatory crosstalk, yet the underlying molecular mechanisms remain largely uncharacterized. The Pseudomonas aeruginosa RetS/GacS system constitutes an ideal model for studying these mechanisms. The in-depth analysis of the kinase region of RetS and RetS/GacS interactions presented here refutes a longstanding model, which posited the formation of a catalytically inactive RetS/GacS heterodimer. Crystallographic studies uncovered structurally dynamic features within the RetS kinase region, suggesting that RetS uses the reversible unfolding of a helix, or helix cracking, to control interactions with GacS. The pivotal importance of this helical region for regulating GacS and, by extension, Pseudomonas aeruginosa virulence, was corroborated via in vivo assays. The implications of this work extend beyond the RetS/GacS system because the helix cracking occurs right next to a highly conserved catalytic residue histidine-424, suggesting this model could represent an emergent archetype for histidine kinase regulation.
