MotD of Sinorhizobium meliloti and related alpha-proteobacteria is the flagellar hook-length regulator and therefore re-assigned as FliK

Eggenhofer, Elke ; Rachel, Reinhard ; Haslbeck, Martin ; Scharf, Birgit


The flagella of the soil bacterium Sinorhizobium meliloti differ from the enterobacterial paradigm in the complex filament structure and modulation of the flagellar rotary speed. The mode of motility control in S. meliloti has a molecular corollary in two novel periplasmic motility proteins, MotC and MotE, that are present in addition to the ubiquitous MotA/MotB energizing proton channel. A fifth ...
