Title
Responses of Staphylococcus aureus bacterial cells to nanocrystalline nickel nanostructures
Abstract

A broad range of human diseases are associated with bacterial infections, often initiated by specific adhesion of a bacterium to the target environment. Despite the significant role of bacterial adhesion in human infectious diseases, details and mechanisms of bacterial adhesion have remained elusive. Herein, we study the physical interactions between Staphylococcus aureus, a type of micro-organism relevant to infections associated with medical implants, and nanocrystalline (nc) nickel nanostructures with various columnar features, including solid core, hollow, x-shaped and c-shaped pillars. Scanning electron microscopy results show the tendency of these bacterial cells to attach to the nickel nanostructures. Moreover, unique single bacterium attachment characteristics were observed on nickel nanostructures with dimensions comparable to the size of a single bacterium.
