The fliD genes of Salmonella typhimurium and Escherichia coli encode the filament-cap protein of the flagellar apparatus, which facilitates the polymerization of endogenous flagellin at the tips of the growing filaments. Previous sequence analysis of this operon in both organisms has revealed that the fliD gene constitutes an operon together with two additional genes, fliS and fliT. Based on the gene-disruption experiment in E. coli, both the fliS and fliT genes have been postulated to be… CONTINUE READING
