Identification of a bacterial factor required for actin-based motility of Burkholderia pseudomallei - Stevens - 2005 - Molecular Microbiology - Wiley Online Library -

Dr Jo Badge
Actin polymerisation is one way pathogens spread from one infected cell into the next. B. pseudomallei has been found to use a protein called BimA, which accumulates at one end of the cell, diverting actin into a long polymeric chain. This chain protrudes from the infected host cell and initiates contact with a new uninfected host cell.

That's right. Is this related to your project? -

Yes, I'm investigating 'Virulence factors of B. pseudomallei' with Dr Galyov and Dr Lazar Adler. -
