Diversity and distribution of Type VI Secretion System gene clusters in bacterial plasmids
(Nature Portfolio, 2022)
The Type III Secretion System (T3SS)-Translocon of Atypical Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (aEPEC) Can Mediate Adherence
(Frontiers Media Sa, 2019-07-09)
The intimin protein is the major adhesin involved in the intimate adherence of atypical enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (aEPEC) strains to epithelial cells, but little is known about the structures involved in their early ...
The type III protein secretion system contributes to Xanthomonas citri subsp. citri biofilm formation
(Biomed Central, 2014-04)
Background: Several bacterial plant pathogens colonize their hosts through the secretion of effector proteins by a Type III protein secretion system (T3SS). The role of T3SS in bacterial pathogenesis is well established ...
Type IV secretion system is not involved in infection process in citrus
(International Journal Of Microbiology, 2014)
The type IV secretion system (T4SS) is used by Gram-negative bacteria to translocate protein and DNA substrates across the cell envelope and into target cells. Xanthomonas citri subsp. citri contains two copies of the T4SS, ...
Rhizobial Exopolysaccharides and Type VI Secretion Systems: A Promising Way to Improve Nitrogen Acquisition by Legumes
At present, there are numerous examples in which symbiotic nitrogen fixation by rhizobia can totally replace the use of nitrogen fertilizers in legume crops. Over the years, there has been a great effort by research ...
The Type IV Secretion System of ICEAfe1: Formation of a Conjugative Pilus in Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans
The dispersal of mobile genetic elements and their gene cargo relies on type IV secretion systems (T4SS). In this work the ICEAfe1 Tra-type T4SS nanomachine, encoded in the publicly available genome of Acidithiobacillus ...
The Xanthomonas citri pv. citri Type VI Secretion System is Induced During Epiphytic Colonization of Citrus
Xanthomonas citri pv. citri (X. citri pv. citri) is the causal agent of Asiatic citrus canker and infects economically important citrus crops. X. citri pv. citri contains one type VI secretion system (T6SS) required for ...
Genomic characterization of the non-O1/non-O139 Vibrio cholerae strain that caused a gastroenteritis outbreak in Santiago, Chile, 2018
(Microbiology Society, 2020)
Vibrio cholerae is a human pathogen, which is transmitted by the consumption of contaminated food or water. V. cholerae strains belonging to the serogroups O1 and O139 can cause cholera outbreaks and epidemics, a severe ...
