Flagellar export FliJ (IPR012823)

Short name: Flagell_FliJ

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


The bacterial flagellum consists of three major parts: the basal body (including the rod), the hook, and the filament. Outer components of the flagellum are transported to the assembly site by a specialised type III export apparatus, which is related to the type III secretion system (T3SS). FliJ is a soluble regulatory component of the flagellar export apparatus [PMID: 25068520]. The function of FliJ is not clear.
