A tale of a tail – eine kurze Geschichte der Biosynthese von Flagellen
- 16 Downloads
Flagella are the primary organelles of motility and the most prominent extracellular structure of bacteria. The flagellum is a remarkably complex structure and made of several tens of thousands individual building blocks. Many molecular details concerning the organization and assembly mechanisms remain poorly understood. We study the self-assembly processes of the flagellum and aim to understand how nature succeeds in assembling these nanomachines in simple, elegant, yet robust ways.
