Structural studies of bacterial adhesion

Abstract:

Adhesion to abiotic and biotic surfaces is essential for numerous bacterial developmental processes including biofilm formation. While the general role of adhesins in biofilm formation has been explored, the arrangement of these structures on the cell surface and how these structures interact with substrates at the molecular level remain unclear. In this project, the CupE chaperone usher fimbriae of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and the holdfast polysaccharide of Caulobacter crescentus were inves...
