Regulation of the expression and positioning of chemotaxis and motor proteins in Rhodobacter sphaeroides

Abstract:

Bacteria achieve directed motion through their environments by integrating propulsion with chemical detection in the process of chemotaxis. Central to this process are the macromolecular protein structures of the flagellar motor and the chemoreceptor arrays, which are responsible for motility and chemical sensing, respectively. These protein complexes localise to different discrete subcellular positions in different bacterial species, and their correct subcellular localisation is often ess...
