The backtick is used to force MySQL to treat the result as a literal or identifier and not a reserved word. So if in your table you had an entry select, without the backtick it would generate an error.
so that allows me to use fieldnames that have a meaning in MySQL as well; stumbled over that problem before and that is now solved (if I understand correctly).
Will try it the next time that I need it.
