Regulation of the type IV pili localization in Myxococcus xanthus

Myxococcus xanthus cells are rod-shaped and move in the direction of their long axis, using two distinct motility systems. The S-motility system is type IV pili (T4P)-dependent. T4P are dynamic structures, localized at the leading cell pole and undergo extension/retraction oscillations. Upon retract...
