Hechler, Darmstadt. voltae the flagellum is composed of four proteins: FlaA, FlaB1, FlaB2, and FlaB3.

The archaeal and eucaryal EF-2s contain diphthamide, a posttranslationally modified histidine, which is the target of the toxin (Fig. 9) (175) (see Chapter 11). A short region that contains a histidine residue in EF-2 proteins is absent in the homologous EF-G protein from Bacteria, thereby rendering Bacteria resistant to the toxin (232). The in vivo role of diphthamide is not clear. Sulfolobus and yeast EF-2 overproduced in Escherichia coli contain the unmodified histidine, and these recombinant proteins had indistinguishable stability and in vitro translation activity from the diphthamide-containing native enzymes (68).
