Surface attachment behaviour in Rhodobacter sphaeroides

Abstract:

Motility and chemotaxis have been implicated in the process of biofilm formation in a wide range of species. Using a combination of microscopy and image analysis, genetics, microbiology and biochemistry, the initial approach of Rhodobacter sphaeroides cells to a solid surface has been characterised. Interestingly, these data suggest that for R. sphaeroides alterations in motility and swimming behaviour may result in differences in biofilm formation simply by changing the ...
