Complexity in Rhodobacter sphaeroides chemotaxis

Abstract:

Perceiving and responding to the environment is key to survival. Using the prokaryotic equivalent of a nervous system – the chemotaxis system – bacteria sense chemical stimuli and respond by adjusting their movement accordingly.

In chemotactic bacteria, such as the well-studied E. coli, environmental nutrient sensing is achieved through a membrane embedded protein array that specifically clusters at the cell poles. Signalling to the motor is performed by activation of the CheA kinas...
