Suzanne Phillips - Bacterial Locomotion : The How's and Why's
Motile bacteria navigate their environment via chemotaxis systems. These systems consist of a sensor that communicates to the flagellar motor through a two-component signaling mechanism. Research in Vibrio cholera shows a unique sensor proten with two PAS Heme ending domains. Our research concentrates on understanding the role of the Che II operon in Vibrio cholera, Vibrio vulnificus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa as well as elucidating the signaling mechanism of the Aer2 sensor.
