Term Name: bacterial-type flagellum motor Search Ontology:
Definition: A transmembrane complex embedded in the cytoplasmic membrane which is the motor force, or torque, generator of the bacterial-type flagellum. The motor consists of a membrane-anchored rotor complex surrounded by one or more stator complexes in the cytoplasmic membrane. The stator consists of a hetero-hexameric complex of 2 membrane proteins, A and B, with stoichiometry A4B2. Examples are the H+ driven MotA-MotB stator complex of Escherichia coli and Salmonella enterica, and the Na+ driven PomA-PomB stator complex of Vibrio and Shewanella species. The rotor complex consists of a membrane-anchored ring and the motor switch complex, which controls the direction of flagellar rotation. (4)
