Bacterial flagella cartoon

Swarming is the multicellular movement of bacteria across a surface and is powered by rotating helical flagella. Swimming is the movement of individual bacteria in liquid, also powered by rotating flagella. Twitching is surface movement of bacteria that is powered by the extension of pili, which then attach to the surface and subsequently retract, pulling the cell closer to the site of attachment. Gliding is active surface movement that does not require flagella or pili and involves focal-adhesion complexes. Sliding is passive surface translocation that is powered by growth and facilitated by a surfactant. The direction of cell movement is indicated by black arrows, and the motors that power the movement are indicated by coloured circles.
