Prokaryotes possess various kinds of cell surface organelles serving versatile biological roles depending on the environmental niche of the organism. The formation of these structures involves fascinating machineries, as not only do the protein components need to travel across the cytoplasmic membrane like all secreted proteins, but they also need to do so in a precisely coordinated manner for proper assembly. Most commonly found on the surface of bacteria are flagella used for swimming (47… CONTINUE READING
