    Potassium-mediated bacterial chemotactic response

    Chi Zhang, Rongjing Zhang, Junhua Yuan
    Escherichia coli exhibits sensitive chemotaxis to potassium, mediated by differential responses of Tar and Tsr chemoreceptors to intracellular pH changes induced by potassium concentration gradients.

    Bacterial vampirism mediated through taxis to serum

    Siena J Glenn, Zealon Gentry-Lear ... Arden Baylink
    Enteric bacteria associated with bloodstream infections are attracted to human serum through L-serine and the chemoreceptor Tsr, and in an enterohemorrhagic lesion model use chemotaxis to invade damaged vasculature.
