Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0009425 - bacterial-type flagellum basal body

Synonyms: flagellin-based flagellum basal body

Definition: One of the three major substructures of the flagellin-based flagellum; a structure consisting of a rod, a series of rings, the Mot proteins, the switch complex and the flagellum-specific export apparatus. The rings anchor the flagellum to the cytoplasmic membrane (MS ring), the peptidoglycan (P ring) and the outer membrane (L ring). Examples of this component are found in bacteria.
