  • The origin of the eukaryotic motility organelle (undulipodium, cilium, or 9+2 flagellum, henceforth referred to as the undulipodium),’ and its underlying structure the kinetosome (homologous to the centriole) is considered an enigma.3 Although bacteria possess what are termed flagella, there is neither structural nor physiological homology of prokaryotic flagella with eukaryotic undulipodia (FIGURE 1 ). Prokaryotic flagella are much smaller and more simple than ~ndulipodia.~ The extracellular… CONTINUE READING
