Application of magnetic torque on the bacterial flagellar motor

Abstract:

There is a strong need to develop a mechanical method to apply external torque to the bacterial flagellar motor. Such a method will allow us to probe the behaviour of the motor at a range of different speeds under different external conditions.

In this thesis, I explored various methods to deliver torque at the single-molecule level, in particular the use of angular optical trapping and magnetic tweezers. I have identified rutile particles as suitable handles for use in angular opti...
