It is used to propel the organism. It is like a paddle for someone in a canoe.

Bacteria do not have cilia. They have fimbriae and flagella.

Yes, bacteria do have flagella. A flagella is whiplike projection on the surface of the bacterial cell, which makes/helps the bacteria to move.

How can a bacteria without flagella move ?

These bacteria that have flagella have to be handled more carefully than bacteria without flagella because the flagella could brake off the bacteria. Remember that some bacterial flagella are very small and delicate.

Flagella is the whip-like structure extending from the bacteria and it allows for movement of bacteria.

Some methanogenic bacteria (which are anaerobic) do have flagella. You can read more in the related link


Flagella on any cell (including bacteria) move it towards some goal.

NO, flagella is tiny organelles on cells. The tail of sperm and even bacteria has flagella, though.

Bacteria only have cilia while protists have both cilia and flagella.

They are tiny hair like things on bacteria to help it fell and move

Young cultures are typically used for a flagella stain because they are healthier and livelier. This helps the flagella get seen easier since the bacteria are continuously moving.

A penicillum does not have flagella, it is a drug, or antibiotic

Some bacteria cells have flagella or tiny whip-like structures. A bacteria may have one flagellum or many flagella. A bacteria will use its flagella to move in its environment. Bacteria that do not have flagella cannot move on their own. They rely on air or water currents, clothing, or other objects to carry them from place to place.ya beacuse they travel from animal to animal

The role of a flagella in a bacterial cell is motility. Through the back and forth movements of the flagella bacteria can propel themselves through their environment. The flagella also help bacteria undergo chemotaxis, the ability to move away from some stimuli and move towards others.

Flagella, Flagellum for a singular one.

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.

It transports the bacteria from one place to the other!

I used a young culture for the flagella stain because the bacteria are more lively. As a result of this flagella would more likely be seen due to the bacteria's vigorous movement.

By the use of its flagella.

Both. Bacteria and protists are know to navigate through fluids with flagella.

No. Most do, but certain bacteria do not have flagella, and can't move on their own.

Fimbriae are protein filments that are all over the bacteria and ar used to attach onto other bacteria while colonisation. Flagella are more complex and rotate to provide mobility for the cell.

Yes, many of the rod shaped bacteria have this whip like mode of transportation. Their shape seems rather " designed " to be propelled by flagella.

No, only some prokarotes have flagella (eg: bacteria, Euglena)
