Abstract

SUMMARY

The possession of flagellar hooks by non-flagellate mutants derived from phase 1 stable strains of was determined by electron microscopic examination of material detached from these bacteria by mechanical means. Hooks were found in all the preparations from mutants but none in those from mutants representative of fourteen different complementation groups. The hooks from mutants were morphologically indistinguishable from those of wild-type. These results show that all the genes are involved in hook formation and that the flagellin structural gene is not.
