Nanomachine used by the highly virulent bacteria to secrete toxins

Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Monash University’s Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) researchers have created the first high-resolution structure depicting a crucial part of the ‘superbug’ Pseudomonas aeruginosa, classified by the WHO as having the highest level threat to human health. The image identifies the nanomachine used by the highly virulent bacteria to secrete toxins, pointing …

Oldest nanomachines in biology is the bacterial flagellum

One of the oldest nanomachines in biology is the bacterial flagellum. This apparatus is evolutionary essential, endowing onto bacteria the ability to move. The flagellum shares high similarity with another bacterial structure, the injectisome, which as the name implies is how some bacteria deliver their content to infect a host. …
