CitationYuan, Junying, and Howard Curtis Berg. 2009. Following the behavior of the flagellar rotary motor near zero load. Experimental Mechanics, published online 09 September 2009. http://www.springerlink.com/content/5np0175062378620/
AbstractAt room temperature at stall, the flagellar motor of the bacterium
Escherichia coli exerts a torque of ~1300 pN nm. At zero external load, it spins ~330 Hz. Techniques for studying the motor near zero load are novel and are summarized here.
