The Frz chemosensory system controls directed motility in Myxococcus xanthus by regulating cellular reversal frequency. M. xanthus requires the Frz system for vegetative swarming on rich media and for cellular aggregation during fruiting body formation on starvation media. The Frz signal transduction pathway is formed by proteins that share homology with… CONTINUE READING
