Cross-kymography analysis to quantify the function and morphology of helical structures simultaneously

Motile archaea and bacteria move freely towards a better environment in three-dimensional space by rotating a helical filament called the archaellum and bacterial flagellum, respectively. Long-term observation systems of the motility have been gradually developed; however, they are specialized for quantification of functional parameters, not structures. Recently, we developed an advanced method called “cross-kymography analysis”, which enables us to simultaneously quantify the function and morphology of helical structures using a total internal reflection fluorescence microscope. We expect that this technique will be a breakthrough not only for the study of archaeal motility, but also for bacterial motility research.
