PomA and PomB form a complex that conducts sodium ions and generates the torque for the Na(+)-driven polar flagellar motor of Vibrio alginolyticus. PomA has four transmembrane segments. One periplasmic loop (loop(1-2)) connects segments 1 and 2, and another (loop(3-4)), in which cysteine-scanning mutagenesis had been carried out, connects segments 3 and 4. When PomA with an introduced Cys residue (Cys-PomA) in the C-terminal periplasmic loop (loop(3-4)) was examined without exposure to a… CONTINUE READING
