Rotation of the bacterial flagellar motor is powered by a transmembrane gradient of protons or, in some species, sodium ions. The molecular mechanism of coupling between ion flow and motor rotation is not understood. The proteins most closely involved in motor rotation are MotA, MotB, and FliG. MotA and MotB are transmembrane proteins that function in(More)
The FliM protein of Escherichia coli is required for the assembly and function of flagella. Genetic analyses and binding studies have shown that FliM interacts with several other flagellar proteins, including FliN, FliG, phosphorylated CheY, other copies of FliM, and possibly MotA and FliF. Here, we examine the effects of a set of linker insertions and(More)
Apoptosis is a cell suicide programme characterised by unique cellular events such as mitochondrial fragmentation and dysfunction, nuclear condensation, cytoplasmic shrinkage and activation of apoptotic protease caspases, and these serve as the noticeable apoptotic markers for the commitment of cell demise. Here, we show that, however, the characterised(More)
In plants, sex determination is a comprehensive process of correlated events, which involves genes that are differentially and/or specifically expressed in distinct developmental phases. Exploring gene expression profiles from different sex types will contribute to fully understanding sex determination in plants. In this study, we conducted RNA-sequencing(More)
