Type IV pili (T4P) are surface structures that undergo extension/retraction oscillations to generate cell motility. In Myxococcus xanthus, T4P are unipolarly localized and undergo pole-to-pole oscillations synchronously with cellular reversals. We investigated the mechanisms underlying these oscillations. We show that several T4P proteins localize(More)
The species human parvovirus B19 (B19V) can be divided into three genotypes. In this study, we addressed the question as to whether infection of an individual is restricted to one genotype. As viral DNA is detectable in tissue for long times after acute infection, we examined 87 liver specimens from adults for the presence of B19V DNA. Fifty-nine samples(More)
