Bakterielle Harpune im Nanomassstab

Einen Mikrometer lang und weniger als dreissig Nanometer breit – ungefähr tausend Mal dünner als ein menschliches Haar –, das ist die Grösse einer bakteriellen «Harpune». Dieses sogenannte Typ-VI-Sekretionssystem von Bakterien ist eine beinah unschlagbare Waffe im Kampf gegen Konkurrenten oder beim Befall von Wirtszellen. In ihrer aktuellen Veröffentlichung in «Cell» gibt das Team von Prof. Marek Basler vom Biozentrum der Universität Basel Aufschluss über die atomare Struktur dieses Sekretionsapparates.
