During Chemotaxis in bacteria with flagella, the flagellar rotation dictates how the cell moves. If the flagella rotate counterclockwise, then they form a bundle at one end of the cell (---O) and propel it forward in a coordinated fashion. However, if the flagella rotate clockwise, then each flagella acts independently to push the cell in many different directions.
My question is, why doesn't clockwise flagellar rotation simply cause the bundle to form on the opposite end of the cell? (O---)
