    Acute exposure to apolipoprotein A1 inhibits macrophage chemotaxis in vitro and monocyte recruitment in vivo

    Asif J Iqbal et al.
    Mechanistic insights show how treatment with apoA1 is anti-inflammatory by rapidly disrupting macrophage chemotaxis and monocyte recruitment.

    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.

    c-di-GMP heterogeneity is generated by the chemotaxis machinery to regulate flagellar motility

    Bridget R Kulasekara et al.
    Real time measurements of c-di-GMP in individual cells reveal an unexpected mechanism by which the chemotaxis machinery controls c-di-GMP heterogeneity, thereby regulating flagellar-based motility.

    Dynamical feature extraction at the sensory periphery guides chemotaxis

    Aljoscha Schulze et al.
    A computational model for the control of chemotaxis in the Drosophila larva clarifies the link between the peripheral encoding of naturalistic olfactory stimuli and action selection.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The C. elegans neural editome reveals an ADAR target mRNA required for proper chemotaxis

    Sarah N Deffit et al.
    Identification of tissue-specific RNA editing using a robust, publicly-available platform (SAILOR) reveals noncoding A-to-I editing events required for proper gene expression and neurological function, significantly advancing the understanding of how ADARs function in neural cells.

    The cation channel TRPA1 tunes mosquito thermotaxis to host temperatures

    Román A Corfas, Leslie B Vosshall
    Female mosquitoes are exquisitely sensitive to human body heat, and the TRPA1 gene is required to focus their attraction toward thermal stimuli resembling warm-blooded hosts.
