Flagella?

Post by lew14 » Mon Sep 24, 2007 12:23 am

Are flagella found in plant cells, animal cells, bacteria cells, or all three?

Yes and no - there are different structures with the same term.

My science teacher gave me an assignment about flagella. one of the questions was if it was found in an animal, plant, or bacterial cell. i'm not really sure, but i think its found in a bacterial and animal cell. not plant

it's found in all of them, but, as darby said, the EK flagellum has a different structure than the bacterial flagellum.
