Making sense of it all: bacterial chemotaxis

GH Wadhams, JP Armitage - Nature reviews Molecular cell biology, 2004 -
Abstract Bacteria must be able to respond to a changing environment, and one way to
respond is to move. The transduction of sensory signals alters the concentration of small
phosphorylated response regulators that bind to the rotary flagellar motor and cause
switching. This simple pathway has provided a paradigm for sensory systems in general.
However, the increasing number of sequenced bacterial genomes shows that although ...
