Bacterial Flagellum Growth

The bacterial flagellum is a self-assembling filament, which bacteria use for swimming. It is built from tens of thousands of flagellin monomers in a self-assembly process involving translocation of the monomers through the flagellar interior, a channel, to the growing tip. Each monomer is pumped into the filament at the base, translocates unfolded along the channel and then binds to the tip of the filament, thereby extending the growing flagellum. Rest
