Identification and characterization of a novel cell-envelope subcomplex crucial for A-motility in M. xanthus

Myxococcus xanthus is a rod-shaped, Gram-negative bacterium that has two different motility systems: the A- and the S-motility system. A-motility allows the movement of single cells, while S-motility is cell-cell contact-dependent and is similar to twitching motility in other bacteria. If genes of o...
