The relationship between flagellar motor dynamics and the proton motive force

Abstract:

The bacterial flagellar motor is one of the few rotary motors found in nature, and an excellent example of a complex molecular machine. Flagellar motors in the model organism Escherichia coli are products of the coordinated expression of ∼50 different genes. The E. coli flagellar motor is powered by the proton-motive force (pmf), an electrochemical gradient across the cell membrane. Motor torque is gen- erated by proton flow through membrane-embedded stator units...
