Regulation and controlling the motility properties of Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Fazlurrahman Khan, Dung Thuy Nguyen Pham, Sandra Oloketuyi, Young-Mog Kim, 2020, review article

Abstract: Chronic infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa have been a major concern as their spread and mortality continue to be on the rise. These infections are majorly attributed to biofilm formation via sequential steps where motility plays an essential role in initial attachment of bacterial cells onto biotic and abiotic surfaces, thereby contributing to multi-drug resistance among pathogens. Therefore, attenuating motility properties can be considered as highly potential for controlling P. aeruginosa biofilm formation. This strategy has employed the use of various natural and chemically synthesized compounds. The present review article explained the importance and regulation of different types of motilities properties. Furthermore, it also covered several important alternative approaches using anti-motility agents which could be helpful for controlling P. aeruginosa biofilm-associated infections. Further studies are required for in-depth understandings about the mechanisms of motilities controlling of these molecules at molecular levels.

Molecules involved in motility regulation in Escherichia coli cells: a review
Fazlurrahman Khan, Nazia Tabassum, Dung :Pham, Sandra Oloketuyi, Young-Mog Kim, 2020, original scientific article

Abstract: The initial colonization of the host organism by commensal, probiotic, and pathogenic Escherichia coli strains is an important step in the development of infections and biofilms. Sensing and colonization of host cell surfaces are governed by flagellar and fimbriae/pili appendages, respectively. Biofilm formation confers great advantages on pathogenic E. coli cells such as protection against the host immune system, antimicrobial agents, and several environmental stress factors. The transition from planktonic to sessile physiological states involves several signaling cascades and factors responsible for the regulation of flagellar motility in E. coli cells. These regulatory factors have thus become important targets to control pathogenicity. Hence, attenuation of flagellar motility is considered a potential therapy against pathogenic E. coli. The present review describes signaling pathways and proteins involved in direct or indirect regulation of flagellar motility. Furthermore, application strategies for antimotility natural or synthetic compounds are discussed also.
