Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus is an environmentally-ubiquitous bacterium that uses unique adaptations to kill other bacteria. The best-characterized strain, HD100, has a multistage lifestyle, with both a free-living attack phase and an intraperiplasmic growth and division phase inside the prey cell. Advances in understanding the basic biology and regulation of predation processes are paving the way for future potential therapeutic and bioremediation applications of this unusual bacterium.
