Flagellar structure and hyperthermophily: analysis of a single flagellin gene and its product in Aquifex pyrophilus

Behammer, W. ; Shao, Z. ; Mages, W. ; Rachel, Reinhard ; Stetter, Karl Otto ; Schmitt, R.


The polytrichously inserted flagella of Aquifex pyrophilus, a marine hyperthermophilic bacterium growing at 85 degrees C, were isolated and purified. Electron micrographs of the 19-nm-diameter flagellar filaments show prominent helical arrays of subunits. The primary structure of these 54-kDa flagellin monomers determining the helical shape and heat stability of filaments was of particular ...
