Consist of delicate stands of proteins. ___________ Long, thin extensions that allow some bacteria to move about freely in aqueous environments. ____________ (endoflagella) Wind around bacteria, causing movement in waves. ____________ Most Gram- bacteria have these short, fine appendages surrounding the cell. Gram+ bacteria do not have. No role in motility. Help bacteria adhere to solid surfaces. Major factor in virulence. ____________ Tubes that are longer than fimbriae , usually shorter than flagella. Use for movement, like grappling hooks, and also use conjugation pili (singular = pilus) to transfer plasmids.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
