Protein turbines. I: The bacterial flagellar motor.

Biophysical journal | Aug 29, 1997

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9251788

The bacterial flagellar motor is driven by a flux of ions between the cytoplasm and the periplasmic lumen. Here we show how an electrostatic mechanism can convert this ion flux into a rotary torque. We demonstrate that, with reasonable parameters, the model can reproduce many of the experimental measurements.
