Concept #1: Chemotaxis

Practice: Structures external to the bacterial cell wall that is used for motility (movement) by chemotaxis:

Practice: A bacterial cell moving away from the light would be an example of _______.

Concept #2: Chemotaxis

Practice: A common attractant for bacteria is glucose sugar. Bacteria placed in a cup of water with dissolved glucose are going to change their movements depending on the concentration of the glucose. If the concentration of glucose increases the bacteria will…

Practice: If an E. coli bacterium finds itself moving away from an attractant how will its movements change?
