Bacteria swim by rotating their flagella, the rotation being due to a motor located at the base of each flagellum. In this paper the correlation between motor function and mode of swimming is reviewed, with special emphasis on recent data that indicate that the motor is a three-state device. Novel findings with regard to the motor function and bioenergetics… CONTINUE READING
