Gene Cloning of a Flagellar Sheath Protein of Helicobacter Pylori
Helicobacter pylori possesses up to six, unipolar sheathed flagella which appear essential for the colonization of the gastric mucosa.1 The flagellins, FlaA and FlaB, have been characterized and the genes which encode them thoroughly analyzed.5,8 However, relatively little is known about the flagellar sheath, which is an unusual structure common to all members of the genus.
