Magnetotaxis
Magnetotaxis describes an ability to sense a magnetic field and coordinate movement in response. In 1975, R.P. Blakemore appeared to have observed the phenomena observing the behaviour of certain moti...
Magnetotactic bacteria
Magnetotactic bacteria (or MTB) are a polyphyletic group of bacteria discovered by Richard P. Blakemore in 1975, that orient along the magnetic field lines of Earth's magnetic field. To perform this t...

Magnetosome
Magnetosome chains are membranous prokaryotic structures present in magnetotactic bacteria. They contain 15 to 20 magnetite crystals that together act like a compass needle to orient magnetotactic bac...
Magnetospirillum
Magnetospirillum is a Gram-negative, microaerophilic genus of magnetotactic bacterium, first isolated from pond water by the microbiologist R. P. Blakemore in 1975. They are characterized by a spirill...
