  • The four motor proteins PomA, PomB, MotX and MotY, which are believed to be stator proteins, are essential for motility by the Na+‐driven flagella of Vibrio alginolyticus. When we purified the flagellar basal bodies, MotX and MotY were detected in the basal body, which is the supramolecular complex comprised of the rotor and the bushing, but PomA and PomB were not. By antibody labelling, MotX and MotY were detected around the LP ring. These results indicate that MotX and MotY associate with the… CONTINUE READING
