b: a stalk which is hollow
What: "Archae flagella evolved from bacterial type IV pili while bacterial flagella evolved from type III secretion system. Bacterial flagellum is like a stalk which is hollow and is assembled by subunits that are free to move up the central pore adding on to tip of flagella while in archael flagella subunits are added on to the base."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
