Abstract

The structure of the flagellar filaments of 50 strains, each with a different H antigen, was examined. Although the flagella within each strain were structurally identical, there was variability in flagellar surface pattern between strains with different H antigens. Investigation of additional strains confirmed that flagella structure was the same in all strains having the same H antigen. In three pairs of strains with cross-reacting H antigens, the antigenic relatedness was associated with identical flagella structure.
