The Salmonella typhimurium basal body, a part of the flagellar rotary motor, consists of four rings (denoted M, S, P and L) and a coaxial rod. Using low-dose electron microscopy and image averaging methods on negatively stained and frozen-hydrated preparations, we examined whole basal body complexes and subcomplexes obtained by dissociation in acid. Dissociation occurs in steps, allowing us to obtain images of substructures lacking the M ring, lacking the M and S rings, and lacking the M and S… CONTINUE READING
