Comments [?]

Function Dual-function protein that regulates the transcription of class 2 flagellar operons and that also acts as an export chaperone for the filament-capping protein FliD. As a transcriptional regulator, acts as an anti-FlhDC factor; it directly binds FlhC, thus inhibiting the binding of the FlhC/FlhD complex to class 2 promoters, resulting in decreased expression of class 2 flagellar operons. As a chaperone, effects FliD transition to the membrane by preventing its premature polymerization, and by directing it to the export apparatus.
Subunit Homodimer. Interacts with FliD and FlhC.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm, cytosol.
Similarity Belongs to the FliT family.
