Abstract

Although is a leading cause of food-borne illness, little is known about the mechanisms by which this pathogen mediates prolonged environmental survival or host cell virulence. Although these behaviours represent distinct phenotypes, they share a common requirement of an immobilized state. In order to understand the cellular mechanisms that facilitate a surface-associated lifestyle, transcriptional and translational expression profiles were determined for sessile and planktonic . These investigations indicate that the immobilized bacteria undergo a shift in cellular priorities away from metabolic, motility and protein synthesis capabilities towards emphasis on iron uptake, oxidative stress defence and membrane transport. This pattern of expression partially overlaps those reported for Campylobacter during host colonization, as well as for other species of bacteria involved in biofilms, highlighting common adaptive responses to the conserved challenges within each of these phenotypes. The adaptation of Campylobacter to immobilized growth may represent a quasi-differentiated state that functions as a foundation for further specialization towards phenotypes such as biofilm formation or host cell virulence.
