Predatory Bdellovibrio enter the periplasm of other Gram-negative bacteria, growing within and consuming them. Unravelling molecular details of this intimate association between bacterial predator and prey is challenging yet fascinating, and might lead to novel antibacterials in the future. Pioneering physiological and biochemical studies described the predatory life of Bdellovibrio in the 1960s and 1970s, later followed by recombinant DNA work in the 1990s, which led to a revival in… CONTINUE READING
