Extracellular adhesins frequently compose large, highly-ordered structural assemblies that project away from the bacterial surface. These assemblies, known as pili or fimbriae, are rod-like polymeric structures that in some cases can extend up to several micrometers from the cell surface. Because these adhesin structures are critical to bacterial… (More)
