Disease relevance of fliL

  • We report the sequence of 3978 bp of the Agrobacterium tumefaciens chromosome which contains a putative operon encoding the homologues of the transmembrane proton channel protein MotA, and the flagellar switch proteins FliM, FliN and FliG [1].

High impact information on fliL

  • The nonmotile BRUME also carries many flagellar genes but these are generally not PHX and all but one are located in the second chromosome [2].
  • Furthermore, this secretion pathway contributes to flagellar biogenesis and chemotactic responses but not to sensory perception of plant signals or the assembly of a type IV secretion system [3].
  • Two transposon insertions in fliG result in a non-flagellate phenotype, indicating that this gene at least is required for flagellar assembly [1].
  • This contains a putative operon encoding homologues of the flagellar rod and associated proteins FlgBCG and FliE, the L and P ring proteins (FlgHI) a possible flagellum-specific export protein FliP, and two proteins of unknown function, FlgA and FliL [4].
  • Agrobacterium tumefaciens possesses a fourth flagelin gene located in a large gene cluster concerned with flagellar structure, assembly and motility [5].

Biological context of fliL

  • Mutagenesis and protein profiling demonstrate that all four flagellins contribute to flagellar structure: FlaA is the major protein, FlaB and FlaC are present in lesser amounts, and FlaD is a minor component [5].
