  • BACTERIA swim by rotating their flagella1–4. A flagellum consists of a thin helical filament which is joined by a hook to a rod and a set of rings embedded in the cell wall and the plasma membrane5,6. Gram-positive bacteria such as Bacillus subtilis have two rings, one of them, the M ring, binding to the plasma membrane and the other, the S ring, being located on the outside of the membrane. Gram-negative bacteria such as Escherichia coli have two additional rings which are associated with the… CONTINUE READING
