4 Periplasmic Space Between the outer membrane and the periplasmic cylinder is the periplasmic space that contains the endoflagella - a prominent feature of all spirochetes (Figs. 3b, 4a, 4c and 6b). These give rise to the organism's serpentine profile and to its screw-like motility. Each endoflagellum consists of a basal disk, neck, hook, and filament portion (fig. 4b). The endoflagella of B. burgdorferi, like those of other borreliae resemble the external flagella of Gram-negative bacteria. At the point of their insertion into the periplasmic membrane, the basal disks at the apical end of the endoflagella become an integral part of the periplasmic cylinder (Fig.

The degree of intercalation of the stain into and surrounding each endoflagellum gives them the appearance of having variable diameters. Arrows point to areas where much narrower diameter fibrils (substructural elements) can be seen. b The hollow profile of endoflagella by thin sectioning. lIIl (b). at the tenninus of B. burgdoiferi (Fig. 7).
