Single-molecule imaging of electroporated chemotaxis proteins in live bacteria

Abstract:

Many species of motile bacteria use rotating extracellular filaments to propel themselves through liquid media. Each filament is driven by a membrane spanning rotary nano-machine called the bacterial flagellar motor. In Escherichia coli and Rhodobacter sphaeroides the motor is powered by a transmembrane flux of H+ and the chemical energy is converted into work through a ring of stator units pushing on a central rotor.

Chemotaxis is the biasing of movement ...
