Namegliding motility, Bacteroidetes type
DescriptionThe Bacteroidetes phylum includes many organisms capable of gliding motility over surfaces. This has been studied most thoroughly in Flavobacterium johnsoniae. The precise mechanism of the motility has yet to be determined, but a number of the genes involved have been identified by mutagenesis. The gliding phenotype is linked to the utilization of the insoluble polysaccharide chitin as well as susceptability to certain bacteriophage.
