VisN and VisR are global regulators of chemotaxis, flagellar, and motility genes in Sinorhizobium (Rhizobium) meliloti.
The known 41 flagellar, chemotaxis, and motility genes of Sinorhizobium (Rhizobium) meliloti contained in the "flagellar regulon" are organized as seven operons and six transcription units that mapExpand

Rhizobium meliloti swims by unidirectional, intermittent rotation of right-handed flagellar helices.
The 5 to 10 peritrichously inserted complex flagella of Rhizobium meliloti MVII-1 were found to form right-handed flagellar bundles. Bacteria swam at speeds up to 60 microns/s, their randomExpand

Plasmid-mediated uptake and metabolism of sucrose by Escherichia coli K-12.
The conjugative plasmid pUR400 determines tetracycline resistance and enables cells of Escherichia coli K-12 to utilize sucrose as the sole carbon source. Three types of mutants affecting sucroseExpand

Mutational analysis of the Rhizobium lupini H13-3 and Sinorhizobium meliloti flagellin genes: importance of flagellin A for flagellar filament structure and transcriptional regulation.
Complex flagellar filaments are unusual in their fine structure composed of flagellin dimers, in their right-handed helicity, and in their rigidity, which prevents a switch of handedness. The complexExpand

Nucleotide sequences and operon structure of plasmid-borne genes mediating uptake and utilization of raffinose in Escherichia coli.
The plasmid-borne raf operon encodes functions required for inducible uptake and utilization of raffinose by Escherichia coli. Raf functions include active transport (Raf permease),Expand

Identification and sequence analysis of two related flagellin genes in Rhizobium meliloti.
The genomic region that codes for the flagellin subunits of the complex flagellar filaments of Rhizobium meliloti was cloned and sequenced. Two structural genes, flaA and flaB, that encode 395- andExpand

Plain and complex flagella of Pseudomonas rhodos: analysis of fine structure and composition.
Cells of Pseudomonas rhodos 9-6 produce two morphologically distinct flagella termed plain and complex, respectively. Fine structure analyses by electron microscopy and optical diffraction showedExpand

Structure of complex flagellar filaments in Rhizobium meliloti.
The complex flagella of Rhizobium meliloti 2011 and MVII-1 were analyzed with regard to serology, fine structure, subunits, and amino acid composition. The serological identities of flagellarExpand
