From: Functional genomics reveals that Clostridium difficileSpo0A coordinates sporulation, virulence and metabolism

Figure 6

Spo0A is a negative regulator of C. difficile flagellar synthesis. Representative transmission electron micrographs of negatively stained C. difficile 630∆erm and derivatives demonstrating a) no observable flagella on the parental 630∆erm strain but b) hyper-flagellation in the spo0A mutant derivative. Genetic complementation of the c) spo0A mutation greatly reduced flagella levels but did not eliminate their production. Scale bar represents 1 micron.
