Abstract:

This chapter reviews studies on type 4 pili from the species , , and of the family Moraxellaceae and , , and of the family . was originally classified as and was then transferred to the new genus Kingella within the family in 1976. Further studies with , , and confirmed the association between the "spreading-corroding" (SC) colony type and piliation. Researchers studied thin sections of in the electron microscope and concluded that the pili were distributed peritrichously around the cell. When Epp63 was propagated on 5% sheep blood agar, one N-type and six distinct piliated colony types were observed. Thus, pellicle formation can be used as an enrichment procedure to isolate the often rare variants switching from the nonpiliated to the piliated state. The competence for DNA transformation in piliated has also been demonstrated. Further studies on the function and genetics of type 4 pili may lead to a better understanding of the roles that they play in so many bacterial species.
