The chemotactic behavior of Escherichia coli mutants defective in cheB function, which is required to remove methyl esters from methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins, was investigated by subjecting swimming or antibody-tethered cells to various attractant chemicals. Two cheB point mutants, one missense and one nonsense, exhibited stimulus response times much longer than did the wild type, but they eventually returned to the prestimulus swimming pattern, indicating that they were not completely… CONTINUE READING
