Negative chemotaxis in Escherichia coli.
Several methods for detecting or measuring negative chemotaxis are described. Using these, we have surveyed a number of chemicals for their ability to repel Escherichia coli. Although most of theExpand

Chemotaxis toward amino acids in Escherichia coli.
Escherichia coli cells are shown to be attracted to the l-amino acids alanine, asparagine, aspartate, cysteine, glutamate, glycine, methionine, serine, and threonine, but not to arginine, cystine,Expand

Chemotaxis toward sugars in Escherichia coli.
Using a quantitative assay for measuring chemotaxis, we tested a variety of sugars and sugar derivatives for their ability to attract Escherichia coli bacteria. The most effective attractants, i.e.,Expand

The crystal structure of NAD(P)H quinone oxidoreductase 1 in complex with its potent inhibitor dicoumarol.
NAD(P)H quinone oxidoreductase 1 (NQO1) is a ubiquitous flavoenzyme that catalyzes two-electron reduction of quinones to hydroquinones utilizing NAD(P)H as an electron donor. NQO1 binds andExpand

The effect of environmental conditions on the motility of Escherichia coli.
SUMMARY: A simple chemically defined medium for examining the motility of Escherichia coli K12 was designed. The essential components were: (1) a chelating agent to protect the motility againstExpand

A method for measuring the motility of bacteria and for comparing random and non-random motility.
SUMMARY: The motility of Escherichia coli was measured in capillary tubes by determining the distribution of bacteria throughout the tube (the complete assay) or simply by locating the point ofExpand
