Effect of viscosity on bacterial motility.
The behavior of a number of motile flagellated bacteria toward viscosity characteristics of their fluid environments was observed. All showed an increase in velocity (micrometers per second) in moreExpand

Invited review: bacterial flagellar sheaths: structures in search of a function.
Although bacterial flagellar sheaths were observed over 30 years ago, they may still be characterized as structures in search of a function. In addition to true sheaths, bacterial flagella mayExpand
