Scientists Reveal Bacterial T4SS “Biogenesis Machinery”
With cryo-electron microscopy, scientists have zoomed in on a molecular machine that is very different from the Type III Secretion System.
Study Challenges Evolutionary Relationship Between Flagellum and Type III Secretory System
There are various types of flagella, but all function like a rotary engine made by humans. Even non-ID scientists marvel at the complexity of these machines.
Closer Look at the T3SS Reveals Design
If one visualizes the recoil action of large guns on ships as they fire, that is perhaps what the EA (export apparatus) is doing for the T3SS.
Darwin Devolves, Again: Study Finds Bacteria Eject Their Flagella to Avoid Starvation
This finding fits Michael Behe’s book Darwin Devolves perfectly. It’s easier to throw cargo overboard than to create it.
