Mycoplasma mobile, a pathogenic bacterium glides on solid surfaces with a unique mechanism. In the mechanism, "legs" on a cell repeatedly catch and pull sialylated oligosaccharides on host cells. The force for gliding is generated on an internal structure which consists of gliding motors evolved from F-type ATPase/synthase . However, the actual movement of gliding machinery has not been observed. In this study, we focused on visualizing the movement of gliding motors in living cells bydoi:10.1093/jmicro/dfy072 fatcat:t7qspqdv6rfbfifcyta6r6mxym
