Structural Analysis of AGl Complexes Required for Motility Grant uri icon



  • Many environmentally significant microbes use gliding motility to move over surfaces. A better understanding of the mechanism of gliding will allow us to manipulate these organisms to our advantage. We have used a genetic approach to identify proteins that appear to form a novel membrane transport device. The proposed experiments will employ biochemical and immunological methods to characterize this device.
