Shota Kondo, Michio Homma and Seiji Kojima “Analysis of the GTPase motif of FlhF in the control of the number and location of polar flagella in Vibrio alginolyticus

【Significance】
FlhF mutations of the the GTPase motif to affect the flagellar number and location

In this study, to investigate the mechanism of FlhF localization, we introduced random mutations to flhF by hydroxylamine and isolated mutants that cannot generate flagellum at the cell pole. Mutations were mapped only on the GTPase motif of FlhF. The mutant FlhF proteins showed reduced polar localization compared with wild type and still could associate with membrane. We could isolate the new mutants and suggest that the GTPase motif of FlhF has a critical role for the polar localization.
