The bacterial flagellar motor is a molecular machine that couples the influx of specific ions to the generation of the force necessary to drive rotation of the flagellar filament. Four integral membrane proteins, PomA, PomB, MotX, and MotY, have been suggested to be directly involved in torque generation of the Na(+)-driven polar flagellar motor of Vibrio alginolyticus. In the present study, we report the isolation of the functional component of the torque-generating unit. The purified protein… CONTINUE READING
