Abstract

HeLa cells damaged by exposure to low pH released a diffusible attractant which greatly increased the collision frequency and hence the attachment of chemotactic . The attractant was tentatively identified as glycine. In contrast, when undamaged HeLa cells were used, no difference was found between a chemotactic parent strain and a non-chemotactic mutant in collision frequency or attachment. It is suggested that factors increasing cell membrane permeability could attract to host cells
