Identification of the M-ring protein of the flagellar motor of Salmonella typhimurium ( bacterial flagella / basal body / monoclonal antibody / immunoelectron microscopy )

The M ring is a substructure of the flagellar basal body of bacteria, which lies in the cytoplasmic membrane and is therefore close to the site where the energy of the transmembrane proton potential is converted into mechanical work of rotation of the motor. The protsin from which this ring is constructed has not been identified. Flagellar hook-basal body… CONTINUE READING
