While temperature-dependent induction of flagella is a well-characterized phenomenon in Listeria monocytogenes, the essentiality of increased flagellum production during growth at low temperatures remains unclear. To study this relationship, we compared the relative expression levels of two motility genes, flhA and motA, at 3°C, 25°C and 37°C in L. monocytogenes strain EGD-e by using qRT-PCR, and compared the growth curves, motility, and flagellation between the wild-type and flhA and motA… CONTINUE READING
