The bacterial flagellar rotary motor in action

Abstract:

The bacterial flagellar motor is one of the few rotary motors in nature. Only ∼50 nm in diameter, this transmembrane, ion-driven nanomachine rotates a semirigid helical flagellum at speeds of up to 1300 rps. It is composed of at least 13 different proteins, in different copy numbers, resulting from the coordinated, sequential expression of more than 40 genes. Structural studies have revealed a great deal of information about the structure of the motor, but the in vivo activity has been more e...
