 Abstract: Motile bacteria use chemotaxis to migrate towards environments that are favorable for growth and survival. The signaling pathway that mediates this behavior is largely conserved among prokaryotes, with Escherichia coli chemotaxis system being one of the simplest and the best studied. At the core of this pathway are the arrays of clustered chemoreceptors that detect, amplify and integrate various stimuli. Recent work provided deeper understanding of spatial organization and signal processing by these clusters and uncovered the variety of sensory mechanisms used to detect environmental stimuli. Moreover, studies of bacteria with different lifestyles have led to new insights into the diversity and evolutionary conservation of the chemotaxis pathway, as well as the physiological relevance of chemotactic behavior in different environments.
