The bacterial flagellar motor is the most complex rotary motor identified in biology. A central transmembrane rotor spins at up to 1300Hz against a ring of ion translocating stators attached to the cell wall, rotating an external helical flagellum to push the bacterium forward. The evolutionally related T3SS used the equivalent of the rotor to ...

Abstract: Archaea are microorganisms that emerged on this planet roughly 3.5 billion years ago as one of two primary lineages of life beside Bacteria. They are often associated with extreme environments, because most of the described organisms stem from hot springs or hypersaline environments. However, two functional guilds of archaea are ecologically widespread and have ... Read more about "EESS talk on "The role of Archaea in Biogeochemical Cycles""
