Cytoskeletal protein P41 is required to anchor the terminal organelle of the wall-less prokaryote Mycoplasma pneumoniae.

Abstract

The cell wall-less prokaryote Mycoplasma pneumoniae approaches the minimal requirements for a cell yet produces a complex terminal organelle that mediates cytadherence and gliding motility. Here we explored the molecular nature of the M. pneumoniae gliding machinery, utilizing fluorescent protein fusions and digital microcinematography to characterize… (More)
