Bacteria produce conductive nanowires

Abstract:
An international team has found that the metal-reducing bacterium Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 will produce electrically conductive "nanowire" appendages known as pili under conditions that limit the presence of electron acceptors. Similar environments also created nanowires from a photosynthetic bacterium and a fermentative bacterium previously only metal-reducing bacteria have exhibited such structures.
