Example text

Note basal granules. ) subunits to its growing tip. The flagellin subunits are extruded through a hollow central channel in the flagella; when it reaches the tip it condenses with its predecessors, and thus the filament elongates. B. MOTILITY Bacterial flagella are semirigid helical rotors to which the cell imparts a spinning movement. Rotation is driven by the flow of protons into the cell down the gradient produced by the primary proton pump (see above); in the absence of a metabolic energy source, it can be driven by a proton motive force generated by ionophores.

Reproduced, with permission, from Schirmer T: General and specific porins from bacterial outer membranes. ) rier to hydrophobic molecules. Removal of the divalent cations with chelating agents or their displacement by polycationic antibiotics such as polymyxins and aminoglycosides renders the outer membrane permeable to large hydrophobic molecules. LPS, which is extremely toxic to animals, has been called the endotoxin of gram-negative bacteria because it is firmly bound to the cell surface and is released only when the cells are lysed.

The mechanism by which ATP generation is coupled to electron transport is discussed in Chapter 6. 3. Excretion of Hydrolytic Exoenzymes and Pathogenicity Proteins—All organisms that rely on macromolecular organic polymers as a source of nutrients (eg, proteins, polysaccharides, lipids) excrete hydrolytic enzymes that degrade the polymers to subunits small enough to penetrate the cell membrane. Higher animals secrete such enzymes into the lumen of the digestive tract; bacteria (both gram-positive and gram-negative) secrete them directly into the external medium or into the periplasmic space between the peptidoglycan layer and the outer membrane of the cell wall in the case of gramnegative bacteria (see The Cell Wall, below).
