Abstract

We determined the complete nucleotide sequence of the flgD gene of Salmonella typhimurium which is essential for flagellar hook formation. The sequence predicts a protein of 232 amino acids and a calculated molecular mass of 23 987 Da. However, the N-terminal 86 amino acids of FlgD were found sufficient to complement all the flgD mutations examined. The predicted secondary structure suggested that FlgD has a high content of β structure.
