Abstract

The conserved cytoplasmic domains of bacterial chemotaxis receptors are a fibrous arrangement of α-helical coiled coils that look a lot like hair. Such bundles of α-helical filaments mediate sensory-motor responses in all prokaryotic cells. How do they work? Very nearly perfectly is probably as good an answer as any.
