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)
FliN is a component of the bacterial flagellum that is present at levels of more than 100 copies and forms the bulk of the C ring, a drum-shaped structure at the inner end of the basal body. FliN interacts with FliG and FliM to form the rotor-mounted switch complex that controls clockwise-counterclockwise switching of the motor. In addition to its functions(More)
