Motility in Aeromonas caviae, in a liquid environment (in broth culture), is mediated by a single polar flagellum encoded by the fla genes. The polar flagellum filament of A. caviae is composed of two flagellin subunits, FlaA and FlaB, which undergo O-linked glycosylation with six to eight pseudaminic acid glycans linked to serine and threonine residues in their central region. The flm genetic locus in A. caviae is required for flagellin glycosylation and the addition of pseudaminic acid (Pse… CONTINUE READING
