On The Cover: An Acinetobacter trimeric autotransporter adhesin forms peritrichous bacterionanofibers with tough but flexible structure. The flexibility allows the nanofibers to bend, and the toughness provides the resilience required for fiber extension toward targets. These properties brought by the topology of its domains composed of three intertwined chains (pink, yellow, and orange), are important for the nanofibers to exert high adhesiveness. For details see the article by Koiwai et al., pages 3705–3724....
