Biochemistry of Bacterial Flagella
Flagella are the organelles responsible for motility in bacteria. Since they are relatively simple in structure particularly when compared to the flagella of eucaryotic cells, they offer an opportunity to study the basic mechanisms of biological movement as well as the mechanisms involved in the assembly of subcellular organelles and the regulation of their biosynthesis.
