FliM is part of the FliGMN switch complex on the rotor of the bacterial flagellum. A CTG start 34 codons preceding the current start has been proposed as an alternative start codon, but the lack of conservation, overlap with fliL, and the presence of unusual aa pairs (PP and CC) suggests the current start site is correct; experimental verification is needed (Maillet, 2007).
