Bacterial flagellar diversity and significance in pathogenesis.

Author information

School of Biological Sciences, University of Birmingham, UK.


Bacterial flagella are structurally diverse, ranging from the thoroughly investigated model examples found in Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium to the more exotic sheathed flagella of, for example, Helicobacter pylori, and the complex multi-flagellin endoflagella found in many spirochaetes. We summarize some of the emerging structural and genetic findings relating to these more novel flagellar types, and outline their possible significance in the pathogenicity of some medically important bacteria.
