Effects of increased FlhDC expression on the FliC level and motility in the prc mutant. FliC and HA-tagged FlhD levels (a) and the motility (b) of ∆prc-RS218/pBAD-FlhDC with different levels of L-arabinose treatment. Each motility quantitative result was derived from experiments performed in triplicate and is presented as the means ± standard deviations. The plasmid pBAD-FlhDC harbored HA-tagged flhD and His-tagged flhC genes that were under the control of an arabinose-inducible promoter (Table 1). The levels of FliC, FlhD, and OmpA were determined by western blot analyses with a rabbit anti-FliC antiserum and an anti-HA antibody and mouse anti-OmpA antiserum, respectively. The levels of OmpA served as loading controls
