The bacterial flagellum is a complex self-assembling nanomachine that confers motility to the cell. Despite great variation across species, all flagella are ultimately constructed from a helical propeller that is attached to a motor embedded in the inner membrane. The motor consists of a series of stator units surrounding a central rotor made up of two ring complexes, the MS-ring and the C-ring. Despite many studies, high-resolution structural information is still lacking for the MS-ring of t...Expand abstract
