Analogy for Flagellum . A flagellum is a "whiplike" tail that serves to propel a cell forward. A fish would use its tail to help it move forward.. Also, a powerboat is propelled by a rotor, which operates much like a flagellum (although it may be important to note that flagella are often longer …than the cell; whereas boat motors are relatively small).

the long strands that move the cell and clean it the cilia is like this except they are shorter. NIBF: sometimes bacteria can use flagella to stick to surfaces, but when thinking about flagella in a broad sense, it is use for movement
a whip like tail that sprouts at the end of bacteria and it helps bacteria to move in a random way. The bacterial flagellum is made up of the protein flagellin. Its shape is a 20 nanometer-thick blank tube. It is helical and has a acute bend just outside the outer membrane; this "hook" allows …the center of the helix to point directly away from the cell. A shaft runs between the hook and the basal body, passing through protein rings in the cell's membrane that act as bearings. Gram-positive organisms have 2 of these basal body rings, one in the peptidoglycan layer and one in the plasma membrane. Gram-negative organisms have 4 such rings: the L ringassociates with the lipopolysaccharides, the P ring associates with peptidoglycan layer, and the M ring is embedded in the plasma membrane, and the S ring is directly attached to the plasma membrane. The filament ends with a capping protein ( Full Answer )
A flagella enables an organism to travel. Flagella are whip liketails that are used to propel the organism forward.
Answer First of all, Flagella is a kind of cell, not the name of a part in a cell. The flagella is a cell that is pill shaped, and it's most distuingishing quality is the tail at on end of the cell that is used as a rotor. Edit: The flagella actually is the tail part of a sperm cell.
The cilia and flagella are whip like appendages and they consist ofa cylindrical array of nine filaments. The entire assembly issheathed in an extension of the plasma.
A flagella is how some cells and microorganisms travel. Flagella are whip like tails that are used to propel the organism forward.
Flagella allow cells to move throughout the body. An example of this is sperm. The flagellum give sperm the ability to propel itself through the female reproductive tract to fertilize an egg.
Protozoans that have Flagella are Protozones with "Tails" that propel the organism through water. This helps the Protozoa move through water like an animal.
I'm a scientist and the answer to that question is a no because viruses is a big round ball i am apparently putting this into small words as i go on anyway i hope this help.
Flagella move by flicking like little whips or by pullingthemselves. Smooth flagella move by flicking and hairy flagellamove by pulling.
A long, threadlike appendage, especially a whiplike extension of certain cells or unicellular organisms that functions as an organ of locomotion. Source: Answers.com
The flagella helps microscopic organisms to locomote from one place to another for example amoeba moves by the help of flagella...
Cilia and flagella are whip-like appendages that extend from thesurface of the cells. They move liquid past the surface of the cell. They also help single-celled organisms to swim.
"a flagella" is incorrect, since it is a plural. Singular is "flagellum". They are hair-like appendages used for locomotion by single-cell animals.
Cilia and flagella are the primary means of locomotion inunicellular organisms. These propulsion mechanisms are tightlypacked together in arrays.
Without this it's possible that organisms will die. Certain unicellular organisms need sunlight or a certain temperature to survive. So this is very important.
Flagella is found in prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells.Flagella is a hair like structure. Its main purpose is to functionas an organelle of locomotion.
Flagella are microscopic threadlike structures that allow mostprotozoans and bacteria to move. They were first discovered in 1675by Anton van Leeuwenhoek.

If I remember my biology correctly, flagella are what a microorganism uses for movement. This link goes more in depth than I can, however: http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Flagella
Yes!! Cilia and flagella are unicellular organisms main source of locomotion (movement), they help propel the cell/organism
The word "flagella" is plural so the proper term to use for this question would be "flagellum". A flagellum is an organ of locomotion in single cell organisms. In other words, the flagellum help the organism move around.
A long, threadlike appendage, especially a whiplike extension of certain cells or unicellular organisms that functions as an organ of locomotion.
It is true that in multicellular organisms cilia and flagella arethe major means of locomotion. Locomotion is one of thecharacteristics of living organisms.
consist of tubulin as main protein . basal bodies are the basic structrul units .
Bacterial flagellum is composed of protein flagella. Archaeal flagellum is composed of peptides and enzymes. Eukaryotic flagellum is composed of centrioles and microtubules surrounded by the plasma membrane.
flagella eat by engulfment of food particles Flagella is found inside the cell.So they are organelles. They do not eat
Taxis is the directional movement of the flagella("moving tail"). So... the direction of movement by the prokaryotic cell is described in the taxis. Example: positive phototaxis- positive(toward) photo(light)taxis(movement).
Flagella are the locomotory organelles of many species of bacteria. They are located at the posterior end of the bacterium and carry out either a spiral or lashing movement. This process is able to propel the bacterium to a region where nutrition is present. Flagellar movement is an active process, …which means it requires energy. ( Full Answer )
Flagella plays the dual role of locomotion and sense organ, being sensitive to chemicals and temperatures outside the cell.
cilia is a hair like structure which helps micro organisms like paramecium move. It is present on their body in large number. Cilia & flagella are the same.

Flagella is a part of the cell which allows the cell to move. Bacteria which have flagella are not always pathogenic. Some, like Heliobacter pylori have a flagella and cause stomach ulcers in some patients. Thus, a flagella is not an indication of pathogenicity.
Salmonella typhimurium does have a flagella, well actual multipleflagellums. A flagella is a whip like appendage on a cell to helpit move and sense its surroundings.
Yes A flagellum, also called undulipodium, is a whip-like structure used for locomotion, for feeding or other purposes. Almost all organisms have flagella to include protozoa (at some stage in their lives). We humans have them in our bodies. Even our own spermatozoa can be regarded as flagellates…. All these flagella have a similar basic design. flagellum, also called undulipodium, is a whip-like structure used ( Full Answer )
The word flagella comes from te Latin for whip. The first person to apply this to the tails of microorganisms is unknown but it has been in use since the 1800s.
Yes, bacteria do have flagella. A flagella is whiplike projection on the surface of the bacterial cell, which makes/helps the bacteria to move.
Yes, that is actually their intended purpose. Many microbes have flagella to help them move around in their environment. The well known "tail" of a sperm cell is actually a flagella and what the sperm uses to move, or "swim", into the uterus.
Flagella is not a virus. It is a tail-like protrusion of a cell body. A sperm cell has a flagella which is integral to itd locomotion.
No, paramecia have cilia, which are tiny hair-like projections that propel the paramecium through its environment. Both flagella and cilia propel their cell through its environment.
When trying to determine species, stick to the basics, and focus on the causes and controls of the higher life forms present. The main point of any wastewater biomass identification is not to get a PhD, but to fix your plant! Identification Flagellates are single-celled protists with one or more f…lagella, whip-like organelles often used for propulsion. The flagella is used for movement through the liquid. Some flagellates live as colonial entities, while others function as a single cell. Most are free-living organisms, however, a number are parasitic or pathogenic for animals and humans. They multiply by binary fission and some species posses cyst stages. Flagellates range in size from 5-20 Âµm. Many flagellates are able to feed autotrophically as well as heterotrophically. There are two primary groups of flagellates. The Peranema belongs to the group which ingests its food. The other group of flagellates is more like bacteria. They don't ingest whole food. They take in food that is already partially "digested." Dinoflagellates are important primary producers (photosynthesizers) in lakes and oceans, yet they can also ingest prey and feed in an animal-like fashion. Additional Information: Flagellates are protozoa that are found in the group Mastigophora. Some types of flagellates commonly found in wastewater are Euglena, Trigonomonas, and Monas. Recently flagellates were divided into additional categories-plant-like Phytomastigophora and Zoomastigophora. Environment Like their relatives the amoebae, flagellates are usually present when there are large amounts of soluble food available (high F:M or high BOD). They are found during start up when the sludge is young or after an upset, but will quickly predominate over the amoebae because they are more efficient feeders. They are often found in trickling filter, oxidation ponds, lagoons and activated sludge. Flagellates may have one or two flagella or whips for locomotion. Flagellates can be color-less or green. Flagellates are one of the few protozoan form present in sludge that is strongly loaded. Their presence may indicate high soluble BOD levels. Flagellates usually are present in very large numbers during initial start- up of a wastewater treatment plant, during recovery from a toxic discharge to the treatment plant, or at low D.O. levels. If flagellates are present as the dominant protozoan group, this could indicate an unstable wastewater environment and a sludge biomass that is very young. Usually found in low MCRT or low HRT for activated sludge systems. Lagoon systems are different and flagellates are often found in lagoons since it is harder to develop an older sludge in a lagoon with high flows. If the biomass is really old and rotifers and nematodes are usually present, and all of a sudden large numbers of flagellates show up, check to see if a sudden spike of BOD has occurred. Adjustments to RAS and wasting may need to be made in order to handle the sudden increase in BOD. Addition of biological products can also help overcome sudden spikes in BOD to help recover quicker and reduce changes or BOD or TSS permit violations. How to find them: Microscopic examination of a wet mount. Some of the larger amoebae can be seen at 40-100x and 200x. Sometimes there may be tons of really small flagellates that require the use of 400x or even 1000x in order to clearly see them. This usually happens when a sudden spike of BOD has happened. What does it mean when I see an increase in flagellates in my system? It depends upon what the rest of the biomass looks like. If the floc is small, weak, dispersed, you may have a very young sludge age. Typically the presence of flagellates, similar to amoebae indicates a high loading of food vs. the amount of biomass available to eat the organics. Flagellates possess one advantage over their amoeboid relatives in that they can swim. Therefore, enabling them to invade and adapt to a wider range of environments unsuitable for other amoebae. Usually, this means that the sludge is a bit older than if only amoebae are present and there are probably less single celled bacteria swimming around. It may mean the sludge is young if the floc is clear, dispersed and weak, or if you have had rotifers in the past and were old, it may mean a recent high loading of BOD that is forcing the sludge age to a younger age. Usually you can expect high solids in the effluent and higher BOD levels if flagellates are present in significant numbers. Daily microscopic analyses is helpful in documenting where you are today, where you have changed since the previous day and how to react to changes proactively as opposed to when they have become critical! What should I do if there is a significant change in my higher life forms and all of a sudden there is an increase in flagellates? First check to see why they have increased? Is there a change in loading that might impact other areas? Check your nutrients in this case if applicable to your plant. The biggest mistake people make when a high loading comes through or a spill, especially at industrial plants is not to increase nutrient levels when high loading occurs. You might want to adjust your wasting or RAS levels. Some plants add bioaugmentation products in cases of higher loadings. You might need to slightly increase the dosage of product. If using micronutrients, adjust these levels also if the loading is significant. You might need to check the Bed levels in your clarifier. Check your TSS off your clarifiers. More to come soon!

Nope, cyanobacteria are not known to have flagella. They are, however, able to move about through other mechanisms though. Most commonly is gliding motility. An example is Oscillatoria .
A flagellum is a tail-like projection that protrudes from the cell body of certain prokariotic and eukariotic cells, and functions in movement.
Periplasmic flagella do not extend outside of the cell's outer membrane, but stay wrapped around the inner membrane compartment of the cell. These bacteria move by twisting their bodies like a cork screw. For more information about this, check out the spirochete flagella.
flagella propel a cell forward. the natural comparison could be the tail of a fish, and the mechanical comparison could be a propeller on a ship.
flagella are present in outside the cell wall of bacteria and these are different types according to their size. these are having hair like structure.
Bacteria has a flagella. It's like a tail. You can see the pictures on Google Images
propulsion, with movement a single celled organism can move to a different environment more abundant in food, away from toxic areas, meet a potential mate, etc.
No , flagella is not a sexually transmittable infection. Flagella (singular = flagellum) are tail-like appendages found on the body of some eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells to provide movement in motile cells as well as functioning as a sensory structure detecting chemical and temperature changes. …. But, Trichomonas vaginalis is a flagellated protozoan and causes TRICH. ( Full Answer )
