Bacteria and microorganisms are ubiquitous throughout the world, from our bodies to our environments. They provide ideal blueprints to study locomotion in Stokes flow, where viscous drag dominates motion. In Chapter 1, we introduce the mathematics characterizing Stokes flow, and discuss major bacterial locomotion phenomena documented in literature. We emphasize studies of stability and elasticity of bacterial flagella, external appendages aiding locomotion, and the hook joint connecting flagella and cell. We complete our overview examining effects of phase transformations, hydrodynamic interactions,

One of the most exciting developments in the field of bacterial pathogenesis in recent years is the discovery that many pathogens utilize complex nanomachines to deliver bacterially encoded effector proteins into eukaryotic and prokaryotic target cells to modulate a variety of cellular functions for the pathogen’s benefit. These protein-delivery machines include the type III secretion system (T3SS), which is widespread in nature and encoded not only by bacteria pathogenic to vertebrates or plants, but also by bacteria that

The immune system cannot effectively clear the highly motile, opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa in chronically infected patients. Phagocytosis is the primary means of bacterial clearance in P. aeruginosa infections, and thus the central hypothesis of this thesis is that bacterial flagellar motility is a pattern of pathogenesis that is recognized by phagocytes of the innate immune system. We identify phagocytic resistance in P. aeruginosa mutants that lose not just the flagellar structure, but flagellar swimming motility. We show that phagocytic

This book deals with the microorganism Salmonella. This bacterium is well known for a long time, being involved in systemic (typhus and paratyphus infections) and nonsystemic diseases such as food poisoning. Major and minor Salmonellae are widespread worldwide in developing countries and industrialized areas, respectively. In 2015, about 3576 Salmonella strains have been isolated from human infections in Italy. S. typhimurium and S. enteritidis are the most prevalent serotypes and represent 80% of cases of infections over the last 10 years. The antibiotic susceptibility

This volume examines the structure and dynamics of the bacterial flagellum using bacterial genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, structural biology, biophysics, cell biology, and molecular dynamics simulation. The chapters are divided into 4 parts: Part I describes flagellar type III protein exports, assembly, and gene regulation in S. enterica; Part II explains how to isolate the flagella from the bacterial cell bodies, and further explains how to conduct high-resolution structural and functional analyses of the flagellar motor; Part III talks about how

The cytoskeleton is a highly dynamic intracellular platform constituted by a three-dimensional network of proteins responsible for key cellular roles as structure and shape, cell growth and development, and offering to the cell with "motility" that being the ability of the entire cell to move and for material to be moved within the cell in a regulated fashion (vesicle trafficking). The present edition of Cytoskeleton provides new insights into the structure-functional features, dynamics, and cytoskeleton's relationship to diseases. The authors'

In this Journey to Microbial Worlds we present the diversity of microorganisms, from the state of fossil microbes in Archaean age rocks to the possibilities of extraterrestrial life. This volume discusses the extremophiles living in harsh environments (from our anthropocentric point) and describes them in considerable detail. Some chapters also review topics such as symbiosis, bacterial luminescence, methanogens, and petroleum-grown cells. The final chapters of this book shed new light on astrobiology and speculate on extremophiles as candidates for extraterrestrial

Clostridium difficile is a major cause of health-care associated diarrhoea. It is a serious and costly public-health concern worldwide. The pathogenesis of C. difficile disease is mediated primarily by toxins A and B. However, different adhesins have been recently characterized as important colonization factors playing a role in the establishment of the first step of infection. This study investigated for the first time the role of flagella in virulence of two important C. difficile isolates; non-epidemic historical C. difficile 630 PCR-ribotype 012
