Several methods for detecting or measuring negative chemotaxis are described. Using these, we have surveyed a number of chemicals for their ability to repel Escherichia coli. Although most of the repellents are harmful compounds, harmfulness is neither necessary nor sufficient to make a compound a repellent. The repellents can be grouped into at least nine classes according to (i) competition experiments, (ii) mutants lacking certain of the negative taxes, and (iii) their chemical structure. The specificity of each class was studied. It is suggested that each class corresponds to a distinct chemoreceptor. Generally, non-chemotactic mutants lack both positive and negative chemotaxis, and l-methionine is required for both kinds of taxis. Repellents at very low concentrations are not attractants, and attractants at very high concentrations are not repellents. ...
The Escherichia coli chemotaxis network is a model system for biological signal processing. In E. coli, transmembrane receptors responsible for signal transduction assemble into large clusters containing several thousand proteins. These sensory clusters have been observed at cell poles and future division sites. Despite extensive study, it remains unclear how chemotaxis clusters form, what controls cluster size and density, and how the cellular location of clusters is robustly maintained in growing and dividing cells. Here, we use photoactivated localization microscopy (PALM) to map the cellular locations of three proteins central to bacterial chemotaxis (the Tar receptor, CheY, and CheW) with a precision of 15 nm. We find that cluster sizes are approximately exponentially distributed, with no characteristic cluster size. One-third of Tar receptors are part of smaller lateral clusters and not of the large polar clusters. Analysis of the relative cellular locations of 1.1 million individual proteins
Abstract The two-component based chemotaxis signal transduction system allows flagellated bacteria to sense their surrounding chemical environment and move towards more favorable conditions. The attractant signals can be sensed by transmembrane chemoreceptors, and then transmitted to the histidine kinase CheA. Once activated, CheA interacts with the response regulator CheY through phosphorelay, which causes a change in the rotation of the flagella. The direction of flagella rotation determines whether a cell swims straight or just tumbles. Cells also need adaptation to respond to a change in chemical concentrations, and return to their prestimulated level. Adaptation in the B. subtilis chemotaxis system is achieved by three coordinated systems: the methylation system, the CheC/CheD/CheY-p system and the CheV system. CheD, the previously identified receptor deamidase, was shown to be critical to the ability of B. subtilis to perform chemotaxis and is the main focus of this study. This study ...
Sensory adaptation by the chemotaxis system of Escherichia coli requires adjustments of the extent of methyl esterification of the chemotaxis receptor proteins. One mechanism utilized by E. coli to make such adjustments is to control the activity of CheB, the enzyme responsible for removing receptor methyl ester groups. Previous work has established the existence of a multicomponent signal transduction pathway that enables the chemotaxis receptor proteins to control the methylesterase activity in response to chemotactic stimuli. We isolated and characterized CheB mutants that do not respond normally to this control mechanism. In intact cells these CheB variants could not be activated in response to negative chemotaxis stimuli. Further characterization indicated that these CheB variants could not be phosphorylated by the chemotaxis protein kinase CheA. Disruption of the mechanism responsible for regulating methylesterase activity was also observed in cells carrying chromosomal deletions of either cheA or
Rhodobacter sphaeroides has multiple homologues of most of the Escherichia coli chemotaxis genes, organized in two major operons and other, unlinked, loci. These include cheA1 and cheW1 (che Op1) and cheA2, cheW2 and cheW3 (che Op2). We have deleted each of these cheA and cheW homologues in-frame and examined the chemosensory behaviour of these strains on swarm plates and in tethered cell assays. In addition, we have examined the effect of these deletions on the polar localization of the chemoreceptor McpG. In E. coli, deletion of either cheA or cheW results in a non-chemotactic phenotype, and these strains also show no receptor clustering. Here, we demonstrate that CheW2 and CheA2 are required for the normal localization of McpG and for normal chemotactic responses under both aerobic and photoheterotrophic conditions. Under aerobic conditions, deletion of cheW3 has no significant effect on McpG localization and only has an effect on chemotaxis to shallow gradients in swarm plates. Under
Specific glutamates in the methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins (MCPs) of Escherichia coli are modified during sensory adaptation. Attractants that bind to MCPs are known to increase the rate of receptor modification, as with serine and the serine receptor (Tsr), which contributes to an increase in the steady-state (adapted) methylation level. However, MCPs form ternary complexes with two cytoplasmic signaling proteins, the kinase (CheA) and an adaptor protein (CheW), but their influences on receptor methylation are unknown. Here, the influence of CheW on the rate of Tsr methylation has been studied to identify contributions to the process of adaptation. Methyl group incorporation was measured in a series of membrane samples in which the Tsr molecules were engineered to have one available methyl-accepting glutamate residue (297, 304, 311 or 493). The relative rates at these sites (0.14, 0.05, 0.05 and 1, respectively) differed from those found previously for the aspartate receptor (Tar), which was in

The bacterial chemotaxis receptors are transmembrane receptors with a simple signalling pathway which has elements relevant to the general understanding of signal recognition and transduction across membranes, how signals are relayed between molecules in a pathway, and how adaptation to a persistent signal is achieved. Bacterial chemotaxis receptors are composed of a ligand-binding domain, a transmembrane domain consisting of two helices TM1 and TM2, and a cytoplasmic domain. All known bacterial chemotaxis receptors have a highly conserved cytoplasmic domain, which unites signals from different ligand domains into a single signalling pathway to flagella motors. ...
Chemotaxis (from chemo- + taxis) is the movement of an organism in response to a chemical stimulus. Somatic cells, bacteria, and other single-cell or multicellular organisms direct their movements according to certain chemicals in their environment. This is important for bacteria to find food (e.g., glucose) by swimming toward the highest concentration of food molecules, or to flee from poisons (e.g., phenol). In multicellular organisms, chemotaxis is critical to early development (e.g., movement of sperm towards the egg during fertilization) and subsequent phases of development (e.g., migration of neurons or lymphocytes) as well as in normal function. In addition, it has been recognized that mechanisms that allow chemotaxis in animals can be subverted during cancer metastasis. Positive chemotaxis occurs if the movement is toward a higher concentration of the chemical in question; negative chemotaxis if the movement is in the opposite direction. Chemically prompted kinesis (randomly directed or ...
Neutrophils play a critical role in host defense against invading pathogens. Chemotaxis, the directed migration of cells, allows neutrophil to seek out the sites of inflammation and infection. Neutrophil chemotaxis as well as other type of cell migration are considered as cycles composed of highly orchestrated steps. Recently the underlying signaling mechanisms of neutrophil chemotaxis are better understood with the studies in knockout mice and neutrophil-like cell lines: a number of signaling molecules in neutrophil chemotaxis have been identified, and a feedback loop-based model of "frontness" and "backness" pathways has been proposed to explain the establishment of neutrophil polarity and chemotaxis. However, the signaling mechanisms that control actin cytoskeleton reorganization and interaction between the cells and the substratum on which cells migrate are still not fully understood. In my first research project, we have identified a signaling pathway, mediated by non-receptor tyrosine ...
In this talk, I will first discuss several chemotaxis models includingthe classical Keller-Segel model.Chemotaxis is the phenomenon in which cells, bacteria, and other single-cell or multicellular organisms direct their movements according to certain chemicals (chemoattractants) in their environment. The mathematical models of chemotaxis are usually described by highly nonlinear time dependent systems of PDEs. Therefore, accurate and efficient numerical methods are very important for the validation and analysis of these systems. Furthermore, a common property of all existing chemotaxis systems is their ability to model a concentration phenomenon that mathematically results in solutions rapidly growing in small neighborhoods of concentration points/curves. The solutions may blow up or may exhibit a very singular, spiky behavior. In either case, capturing such solutions numerically is a challenging problem. In our work we propose a family of stable (even at times near blow up) and highly accurate ...

APL-1 overexpression using either the apl-1 or the snb-1 promoter, but not the pan-neuronal rab-3 promoter, caused a diminished chemotaxis response to both sodium acetate and benzaldehyde. Similarly, a short heat shock during adulthood to induce ubiquitous APL-1 expression was sufficient to cause an impaired chemotaxis response. These results suggest that APL-1 expression in non-neuronal cells decreases or disrupts the chemotaxis response. For instance, apl-1 signaling may interfere with the feedback from downstream neurons or non-neuronal tissue to the sensory neurons. Strikingly, the chemotaxis impairments of these transgenic animals were fully or partially restored by decreased activity of daf-2 insulin-IGF-1 receptor, daf-7 TGFβ, or daf-12 NHR signaling. Hence, the effects of APL-1 levels on chemotaxis are unlikely to be due to disrupted neuronal structure or neurodegeneration, but rather to modulation of the insulin/IGF-1 and/or DAF-12 NHR signaling pathways. Similarly, disruption of apl-1 ...
The main finding of the current study is that effector CD8+ T cells in skin epithelium approach clusters of infected cells by subtle chemotaxis. This directed migration can be described as a small preference for movements toward the microlesion in an otherwise highly irregular trajectory, and in fact the T cells move away from the sites of infection almost as often as they move toward it.. The observed CXCR3-mediated attraction of T cells by clusters of infected cells implies the existence of a chemoattractant gradient, and the finding that the strength of T cell attraction correlates with lesion size is also consistent with this notion. If T cells are guided to sites of infection by a gradient, why is their migration pattern so erratic? One explanation is that T cell migration has to occur through a bed of tightly linked keratinocytes, thereby severely limiting the number of potential trajectories. This, however, does not seem to explain why T cells also frequently move away from the site of ...

UNLABELLED: Chemokines (CK) provide directional cues that mediate the recruitment of leukocytes to sites of inflammation. Broad-spectrum blockade of the CC-CK family, using the vaccinia virus 35K protein, has been shown to cause a potent reduction of systemic inflammation in models of atherosclerosis, vein graft disease and arthritis. We have used a cell membrane-targeted form of 35K, Mem35K, to probe whether cell-associated blockade of chemokine response is sufficient to reduce cell recruitment in inflammation. In Tie2cre mice, activation of a flox-stop Mem35K transgene directed conditional expression of Mem35K in leukocytes and endothelial cells, confirmed by Western blotting, flow cytometry and immunofluorescence microscopy. This conditional Mem35K expression was sufficient to increase cell surface CCL5 binding and reduce chemotaxis in vitro to CCL5, CCL2 and CCL3 but not to non-CC-CK chemoattractants, LTB4, C5a or chemerin. However, in vivo monocyte recruitment into the peritoneum driven by zymosan

The neural basis of chemotaxis in C. elegans has been studied for years. As sensory inputs, the responses of neurons to chemical cues, such as odor and salts, have been well described (Chalasani et al., 2007; Suzuki et al., 2008). As behavioral outputs, two major strategies for chemotaxis are known: (1) klinokinesis, in which the animal changes the frequency of a complex turning behavior that consists of consecutive short reversals and omega turns, and (2) klinotaxis, in which the animal gradually curves during forward locomotion in response to the chemical gradient perpendicular to the body axis (Pierce-Shimomura et al., 1999; Iino and Yoshida, 2009).. Recent studies on chemotaxis to odor have provided a better understanding of the neural mechanisms that connect these sensory inputs to behavioral outputs. AWC chemosensory neurons show calcium responses to the removal of odor, such as isoamyl alcohol or butanone (Chalasani et al., 2007). Three major interneuron classes that are postsynaptic to ...
One assay that deserves to be explain is the Multi-capillary assay. It uses 96-well PVC microplates as chemotaxis chamber and 1μl glass capillaries. You can see a picture of it in figure 4, at the left. We designed this chemotaxis assay when we were looking for a good way to perform numerous and simultaneous capillary assays. The assembly of the assay required to make holes in a microplate lid to allow glass capillaries to go through it. The lid is put upside down over the microplate and it is filled with 2% agarose gel. We also used parafilm to avoid that the gel drip through the lid holes while it was still humid. The function of the gel is to hold capillaries, in its dry way. In orther to fill capillaries we closed one of its ends by heating and heated the glass; then it was introduce in a attractant or buffer suspension and automatically it is filled. It is important to introduce the capillaries in the lid and gel by its closed end to keep the sterility on the other end. Then it is only ...

To date, we have not tested the fixation of cells in gel inside the observation area of µ-Slide Chemotaxis. From tube formation assays, we generally know that fixation, permeabilization, blocking, and staining of cells on Matrigel™ is possible. Therefore, it should also be possible to do immunostainings in the 3D chemotaxis assay. In this case, we recommend removing the liquid from one reservoir and successively filling the second reservoir with the different solutions. We can assume that the incubation time should be increased by a factor of 4, in order to give the solutions sufficient time to diffuse into the observation area. The filling of liquids should be carefully done, in order not to push out the gel from the observation area.. ...
We show in this report that E. coli remodels its chemosensory physiology as a response to swarming. The altered physiology is likely the result of an elevation of the concentration of CheZ, which increases CheY∼P dephosphorylation bias and reduces the cells tumble bias. Reducing the tumble bias improves swarming performance, but a very low tumble bias negatively impacts expansion of the swarm, corroborating previous reports that tumbling is still necessary in the swarm (49). Therefore, there is an optimal tumble bias for swarming and E. coli is able to adapt its motility behavior to surface conditions that favor swarming.. The increased stability of CheZ in swarmer cells explains the increase in their CheZ levels (Fig. 6). However, the mechanism by which CheZ is specifically stabilized during swarming will require further investigation. In B. subtilis, contact with swarm agar increases synthesis of flagella by somehow sequestering a specific adaptor protein that otherwise (in liquid), in ...

The Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Biology (LCMB) has a long and distinguished history in the study of signal transduction mechanisms that control normal cell growth and, when altered, lead to malignant transformation. Through the 1980s and 1990s many critical signaling molecules including growth factors, growth factor receptors and intracellular transduction molecules were first identified and characterized in the LCMB. The mission of LCMB remains focused on performing cutting-edge, world-class research in this field of biology, and important discoveries continue. The goals of the six LCMB investigators cover a wide range of questions. They focus on defining signaling components and pathways and understanding their regulation. The relationship of signaling to cellular growth and death, transcriptional regulation, mitosis, cellular differentiation and organogenesis, cell adhesion, motility and chemotaxis are more complex topics under investigation. Alterations in signaling leading to ...
Signalling interactions between gametes are fundamental for sex. They entail both diffusible and surface bound signals that serve for partner attraction and recognition, and gamete communication during fusion [26,53-55]. These interactions are nearly always asymmetric so that gametes send and receive signals in a mating-type- or sex-specific manner. In this work, we ask whether asymmetric signalling enhances the efficiency of the signalling interaction itself, a theory first proposed in the 1980s [23].. Some general principles emerge from our analysis. Non-chemotactic cells can improve their search for a partner when they move in fixed directions for longer periods of time (high persistence, figure 3a). That straight-line movement can optimize a random search has been shown before in a different context (see Li et al. and references therein [33]). When cells are unable to maintain a fixed directionality for prolonged periods, symmetric chemotaxis (all cells send and receive the same signal) can ...

The in-cylinder tumble intensity of GDI engine is crucial to combustion stability and thermal efficiency, required to be different for the different operation conditions. A new variable tumble system (VTS) applied to GDI engine was introduced to meet tumble ratio requirements in various situations. The transient gas exchange of four combustion systems all were investigated during both intake and compression strokes based on CFD simulation, namely (1) Case 1-Intake port B (with flap valve)/Spherical piston crown; (2) Case 2-Intake port B (without flap valve)/Spherical piston crown; (3) Case 3- Intake port A/Spherical piston crown; (4) Case 4-Intake port A/Dented piston crown. The simulated results of dynamic tumble ratio showed that during the whole intake process the dynamic tumble ratio of Case1 was obviously higher than other Cases with the same boundary conditions, and the maximum value was about 5∼6 times higher. The crank angle range, in which the strong tumble motion fully developed, was ...
The overall movement of a bacterium is the result of alternating tumble and swim phases. If one watches a bacterium swimming in a uniform environment, its movement will look like a random walk with relatively straight swims interrupted by random tumbles that reorient the bacterium. Bacteria such as E. coli are unable to choose the direction in which they swim, and are unable to swim in a straight line for more than a few seconds due to rotational diffusion. In other words, bacteria "forget" the direction in which they are going. Given these limitations, it is remarkable that bacteria can direct their motion to find favorable locations with high concentrations of attractants (usually food) and avoid repellents (usually poisons). In the presence of a chemical gradient bacteria will chemotax, or direct their overall motion based on the gradient. If the bacterium senses that it is moving in the correct direction (toward attractant/away from repellent), it will keep swimming in a straight line for a ...

In this paper detailed long time asymptotics are calculated for a chemotaxis equation with a logarithmic chemotactic sensitivity which is coupled to an ODE. We consider the radial symmetric setting in any space dimension. The ODE describes a non-diffusing chemical, which is produced by the chemotactic species itself. Intuitively this model can be related to self-attracting reinforced random walks for many particles. Thus the behavior crucially differs with respect to existence of global solutions and the occurrence of finite or infinite time blow-up if compared to the classical Keller-Segel model. Blow-up is more likely to happen in lower dimensions in the present case. This PDE-ODE system is, among others, used in the literature to model haptotaxis and angiogenesis. ...
ABSTRACT: Vertical distributions of viable (most probable number, MPN) aerobic chemoautotrophic thiobacilli-like sulfur-oxidizing bacteria (ca. 70 samples in triplicate for MPN counts) and dark 14C-bicarbonate incorporation rates were analyzed in a series of sulfide-rich lakes. A special device for sampling sharply stratified populations on the scale of a few centimeters was used. Detailed analyses focused on the oxic-anoxic transition zone where aerobic sulfur-oxidizing bacteria should display positive chemotaxis, and in both fully oxic epilimnia and sulfide-rich anoxic hypolimnia. Kinetics of sulfide and thiosulfate potential oxidations in the presence of oxygen were followed in microcosm enrichments in one of the lakes. The highest MPN counts (,104 to 105 cells ml-1) were observed at the oxic-anoxic interfaces and in the depleted hypolimnia (1.3 ± 4.4 × 104 cells ml-1), whereas 1 order of magnitude lower concentrations were detected in the epilimnia (1.0 ± 2.3× 103 cells ml-1).

We present a coupled kinetic-macroscopic equation describing the dynamic behaviors of Cucker-Smale(in short C-S) ensemble undergoing velocity jumps and chemotactic movements. The proposed coupled model consists of a kinetic C-S equation supplemented with a turning operator for the kinetic density of C-S particles, and a reaction-diffusion equation for the chemotactic density. We study a global existence of strong solutions for the proposed model, when initial data is sufficiently regular, compactly supported in velocity and has finite mass and energy. The turning operator can screw up the velocity alignment, and result in a dispersed state. However, under suitable structural assumptions on the turning kernel and ansatz for the reaction term, the effects of the turning operator can vanish asymptotically due to the diffusion of chemical substances. In this situation, velocity alignment can emerge algebraically slow. We also present parabolic and hyperbolic Keller-Segel models with alignment ...
