  2. Garza A, Biran R, Wohlschlegel J, Manson M. Mutations in motB suppressible by changes in stator or rotor components of the bacterial flagellar motor. J Mol Biol. 1996;258:270-85 pubmed
    ..We suggest that most of the suppressors restore motility by introducing compensatory realignments in MotA or FliG. ..
  3. Manson M, Armitage J, Hoch J, Macnab R. Bacterial locomotion and signal transduction. J Bacteriol. 1998;180:1009-22 pubmed
  4. Van Way S, Millas S, Lee A, Manson M. Rusty, jammed, and well-oiled hinges: Mutations affecting the interdomain region of FliG, a rotor element of the Escherichia coli flagellar motor. J Bacteriol. 2004;186:3173-81 pubmed
    ..The effects of these mutations are analyzed in the context of a conformational-coupling model for motor switching and with respect to the structure of the C-terminal 70% of FliG from Thermotoga maritima. ..
  5. Jesudhasan P, Cepeda M, Widmer K, Dowd S, Soni K, Hume M, et al. Transcriptome analysis of genes controlled by luxS/autoinducer-2 in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium. Foodborne Pathog Dis. 2010;7:399-410 pubmed publisher
    ..Phenotypic analysis of DeltaluxS mutant confirmed the microarray results and revealed that luxS did not influence growth but played a role in the biofilm formation and motility...
  6. Silva D, Huang X, Behal R, Cole D, Qin H. The RABL5 homolog IFT22 regulates the cellular pool size and the amount of IFT particles partitioned to the flagellar compartment in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Cytoskeleton (Hoboken). 2012;69:33-48 pubmed publisher
    ..In addition, although IFT22 may not directly carry any precursors for flagellar assembly, it controls how many IFT particles participate in ferrying precursors into flagella. ..
  7. Richey E, Qin H. Dissecting the sequential assembly and localization of intraflagellar transport particle complex B in Chlamydomonas. PLoS ONE. 2012;7:e43118 pubmed publisher
  8. Garza A, Harris Haller L, Stoebner R, Manson M. Motility protein interactions in the bacterial flagellar motor. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 1995;92:1970-4 pubmed
    ..This finding suggests that the postulated Mot-protein complex may be in close proximity to FliG at the stator-rotor interface of the flagellar motor. ..
  9. Ziprin R, Hume M, Andrews K, Droleskey R, Harvey R, Sheffield C. News and notes: An atypical Campylobacter coli exhibiting unusual morphology. Curr Microbiol. 2005;51:161-3 pubmed
    ..The ability to colonize the chick cecum was lost. The atypical cells were compared with the original C. coli 67 culture from which they were derived, with PCR, Riboprinting, and PFGE...

    ..The presence of flagella was also found to be important as qseB and fliA mutants (which lack flagella) had less biofilm than the isogenic paralyzed motA strain (threefold less thickness and 15-fold less surface coverage). ..
  2. Hosking E, Manson M. Clusters of charged residues at the C terminus of MotA and N terminus of MotB are important for function of the Escherichia coli flagellar motor. J Bacteriol. 2008;190:5517-21 pubmed publisher
    ..Charge-altering mutations affecting these residues impair motility but do not diminish Mot protein levels. The motility defects are reversed by second-site mutations targeting the same or partner protein. ..
  3. Wang X, Wood T. IS5 inserts upstream of the master motility operon flhDC in a quasi-Lamarckian way. ISME J. 2011;5:1517-25 pubmed publisher
    ..Hence, the cells appear to 'sense' whether motility is feasible before a sub-population undergoes a mutation to become hypermotile; this sensing appears related to the master transcription regulator, FlhDC. ..

    ..We conclude that no simple correlation exists between the abundance of a receptor, its methylation level, and its CW-signaling ability. ..
