Molecular resolution of listeria monocytogenes motion during actin-based motility

Scot C Kuo, James McGrath

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The trailing ends of Listeria moving in the lamellae of COS7 cells were followed using high-resolution laser tracking. Data disprove the Brownian ratchet model and limit alternative models, such as the elastic Brownian ratchet or the molecular ratchet.
