Chemotactic responses in Vibrio alginolyticus, which has lateral and polar flagellar systems in one cell, were investigated. A lateral-flagella-defective (Pof+ Laf-) mutant, which has only a polar flagellum, usually swam forward by the pushing action of its flagellum and occasionally changed direction by backward swimming. When the repellent phenol was added, Pof+ Laf- cells moved frequently forward and backward (tumbling state). The tumbling was derived from the frequent changing between… CONTINUE READING
