原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Many marine Alphaproteobacteria of the Roseobacter group show a characteristic swim-or-stick lifestyle, for which motility is a crucial trait. Three phylogenetically distinct flagellar gene clusters (FGCs) have been identified in Rhodobacteraceae that have been named fla1 , fla2 and fla3 according to their relative abundance. In addition to the flagellar-dependent swimming and swarming motility, pilus-dependent twitching mediates bacterial locomotion. Furthermore, filament independent modes of motility, namely gliding and sliding, have been described for various microorganisms. However, no mode of motility other than swimming has so far been described for roseobacters. In the present study, we investigated motility, distribution of flagellar systems and the phylogeny of 120...
