When Pseudomonas aeruginosa’s thread-like pilus touches down on a surface, it activates PilT, a motor that retracts the pilus and moves the cell. Unattached pili rarely retract, indicating that surface contact provides a signal for its motors to move. But the mechanism that activates the motor is still unknown.
