Characterizing the flagellar filament and the role of motility in bacterial prey-penetration by Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus
The predatory bacterium Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus swims rapidly by rotation of a single, polar flagellum comprised of a helical filament of flagellin monomers, contained within a membrane sheath andExpand

Discrete Cyclic di-GMP-Dependent Control of Bacterial Predation versus Axenic Growth in Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus
Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus is a Delta-proteobacterium that oscillates between free-living growth and predation on Gram-negative bacteria including important pathogens of man, animals and plants.Expand

A small predatory core genome in the divergent marine Bacteriovorax marinus SJ and the terrestrial Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus
Bacteriovorax marinus SJ is a predatory delta-proteobacterium isolated from a marine environment. The genome sequence of this strain provides an interesting contrast to that of the terrestrialExpand

Biofilm formation by Bacillus subtilis: new insights into regulatory strategies and assembly mechanisms
Biofilm formation is a social behaviour that generates favourable conditions for sustained survival in the natural environment. For the Gram‐positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis the process involvesExpand

A predatory patchwork: membrane and surface structures of Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus.
Predatory Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus bacteria are remarkable in that they attach to, penetrate and digest other Gram-negative bacteria, living and replicating within them until all resources areExpand

Isolation and identification of Bdellovibrio and like organisms ( BALOs ) from various saltwater sites in the southern Cape Cod area , and analysis of their prey range specificity . Microbial
Bdellovibrio is a genus of the deltaproteobacteria, which consists of bacteria that replicate within the periplasm of other ‘Gramnegative’ cells. They have been isolated from many differentExpand

A coiled-coil-repeat protein 'Ccrp' in Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus prevents cellular indentation, but is not essential for vibroid cell morphology.
Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus are small, vibroid, predatory bacteria that grow within the periplasmic space of a host Gram-negative bacterium. The intermediate-filament (IF)-like protein crescentin is aExpand

Bdellovibrio - lone hunter "cousin" of the “pack hunting” Myxobacteria
This chapter describes about the isolation of Bdellovibrio and myxobacteria from similar soil environments, and the employment of an arsenal of hydrolytic enzymes to kill and digest other bacteria toExpand
