An asymmetric structure of the Leptospira´s flagellar filament

Date and venue:  2024, February 22th al 10.00 CET. B6 room- CNB/CSIC, Madrid Summary Description:Leptospira species, as all spirochetes, possess specially adapted endoflagella confined within the periplasm. Endoflagella are essential for the fast corkscrew-like swimming and pathogenicity of leptospires. However, little is known about the composition, function, and molecular architecture of these endoflagellar filaments. Through
