The flagellum, a rotary engine required for motility in many bacteria, plays key roles in gene expression. It has been known for some time that flagellar substructures serve as checkpoints that coordinate flagellar gene expression with assembly. Less well understood, however, are other more global effects on gene expression. For instance, the flagellum acts as a 'wetness' sensor in Salmonella typhimurium, and as a mechanosensor in other bacteria. Additionally, it has been implicated in a… CONTINUE READING
