Large externalized, repeat-rich proteins are emerging as important factors in the attachment of bacteria to biotic and abiotic surfaces. An intriguing new study of the plant-associated terrestrial microbe Pseudomonas putida by Manuel Espinosa-Urgel's group that is reported in this issue of Molecular Microbiology has revealed that LapF, a huge protein (> 6000 aa) associated with the cell surface, is required for microcolony assembly from single attached cells, and in turn, formation of biofilms… CONTINUE READING
