The cmoA mutant retains functional flagella. cmoA mutant cells were spread over the surface of a 1.5% agar plate and incubated at 37°C for 5 h. Two hundred microliters of water were poured onto the colonies and cellular behavior was immediately observed under a video light microscope. The movie is real time. Scale bar, 20 μm.
