A flagella enables an organism to travel. Flagella are whip like tails that are used to propel the organism forward.

The flagella is used for locomotion. It enables the cell to move in a fluid environment.

The function of flagella in a cell is that it provides locomotion, which is the power or ability to move.

A flagella is how some cells and microorganisms travel. Flagella are whip like tails that are used to propel the organism forward.

The major function of the flagella is to move the cell. It's like a long whip which helps it move around and stuff.

Cillia and flagella assist cells in movement. For example, sperm has flagella so it can "swim" in the female body.

Enables cells to movement.

this functions as an organ of locomotion

No flagella do not reproduce.

Flagella is found in prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells. Flagella is a hair like structure. Its main purpose is to function as an organelle of locomotion.

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

The flagella is like a tail, and it helps a cell in locomotion; to move around. Flagellum is the plural of flagella.

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

it acts as the base of flagella/cilia

to move a single celled organism

the function of flagella is motility. To help move around. it is found in a sperm cell.

Flagella is formed outside of the cells in the human body. Their main function is to allow liquids to move past the surface of these cells.

* the flagella is a project as strand while the axial filaments are spirochetes. * flagella : move cell by propeller like action , axial filaments : snake-like movement. flagella : present in gram (+)and gram (-) , while the filaments only in gram (-) . both of them have the same function

Locomotion. Bacteria use their flagella like propellers, allowing them to travel to a location with a richer food supply or in the case of algae to a place with more sunlight.

Flagella is already the plural of flagellum.

Flagella. Flagella Flagellum (flagella is the plural form) flagella

Cilia and flagella help in the movement of a cell, like an animal's legs and feet.

The scientific name is given to flagella can be in three main categories. They include bacterial flagella, eukaryotic flagella and archaeal flagella. As a matter of fact, flagella is a scientific name.
