Abstract Chemoreceptor and chemotaxis signal transduction cascade genes of C. fetus subsp. fetus 82-40 show high level of similarity to that in C. jejuni and appears to include sixteen diverse transducer-like protein (tlp) genes that appear similar to nine of the twelve tlp genes in the C. jejuni NCTC 11168 with a percent identity ranging from 15 to 50%. Sixteen putative C. fetus 82-40 tlp genes belong to three classes: A, B, and C, as well as an aerotaxis gene, based on their predicted structure. C. fetus subsp. fetus 82-40 chemoreceptor and chemotaxis signal transduction pathway genes have close phylogenetic relationship of chemotaxis genes between Campylobacteraceae and Helicobacteraceae.
