Concerted Spatio-Temporal Dynamics of Imported DNA and ComE DNA Uptake Protein during Gonococcal Transformation

Figure 6

Dynamics of 300-DNA import depends on ComE.

a) Time lapse of binding and import by ΔcomE34 ΔpilV. Upper line: brightfield image, middle line: fluorescence image, lower line: pseudocolored intensity image. Δt = 2 min. b) Single cell kinetics for ΔpilV (black circles), ΔcomE34 ΔpilV (red triangles), ΔcomE1234 ΔpilV (grey squares). Full lines: fits to exponential function. c) Average saturation value for fits as in b). (N>6 for each condition).
