    CryoEM and computer simulations reveal a novel kinase conformational switch in bacterial chemotaxis signaling

    C Keith Cassidy et al.
    An atomic model of the bacterial chemosensory array obtained through the synthesis of cryo-electron tomography and large-scale molecular-dynamics simulations reveals a new kinase conformation during signaling events.

    Adaptability of non-genetic diversity in bacterial chemotaxis

    Nicholas W Frankel et al.
    An experimentally constrained model shows that Escherichia coli faces fitness trade-offs in chemotaxis behaviors, and that adaptation of phenotypic diversity through altered gene regulation permits populations to resolve these trade-offs.

    Multiple sources of slow activity fluctuations in a bacterial chemosensory network

    Remy Colin et al.
    Single-cell FRET measurements reveal large temporal activity fluctuations within this signaling pathway in Escherichia coli, caused by stochasticity of receptor methylation combined with allosteric interactions and slow rearrangements within receptor clusters.

    Mechanism of bidirectional thermotaxis in Escherichia coli

    Anja Paulick et al.
    The interplay between the opposing responses mediated by different chemoreceptors enables bacteria to swim towards a preferred temperature.

    Escherichia coli swimming is robust against variations in flagellar number

    Patrick J Mears et al.
    The swimming behavior of E. coli is surprisingly robust against the natural variations in the number of flagella per cell.

    Chemotactic network responses to live bacteria show independence of phagocytosis from chemoreceptor sensing

    Netra Pal Meena, Alan R Kimmel
    Eukaryotic chemotaxis to live bacteria was quantified at a high throughput level, for the first time, and mechanistically examined for the interrelationship between chemotaxis and phagocytosis.

    Signaling Systems: Transferring information without distortion

    Steven S Andrews et al.
    Despite employing diverse molecular mechanisms, many different cell signaling systems avoid losing information by transmitting it in a linear manner.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: From molecular manipulation of domesticated Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to survival in nature

    Severin Sasso et al.
    Dubbed the 'green yeast', the model alga C. reinhardtii has profoundly advanced many areas of biology, but much remains to be learnt about its life in the wild.
