Viruses found to use intricate 'treadmill' to move cargo across bacterial cells: State-of-the-art technologies reveal bacterial cells organized like human cells, offering insights for new phage therapies on untreatable infections
June 18, 2019
Using advanced technologies to explore the inner workings of bacteria, biologists have provided the first example of cargo within bacteriophage cells transiting along treadmill-like structures. The discovery demonstrates that bacteria have more in common with sophisticated human cells than previously believed.
