FliZ is an activator of class 2 flagellar gene expression in Salmonella enterica. To understand its role in flagellar assembly, we investigated how FliZ affects gene expression dynamics. We demonstrate that FliZ participates in a positive-feedback loop that induces a kinetic switch in class 2 gene expression.
