AIMS To examine flagella role and cell motility in adhesion of Achromobacter piechaudii to chalk. METHODS AND RESULTS Transmission electron microscopy revealed that stationary cells have thicker and longer flagella than logarithmic cells. SDS-PAGE analysis showed that flagellin was more abundant in stationary cells than logarithmic ones. Sonication or… CONTINUE READING
