Type III secretion (T3S) systems are largely used by pathogenic gram-negative bacteria to inject multiple effectors into eukaryotic cells. Upon cell contact, these bacterial microinjection devices insert two T3S substrates into host cell membranes, forming a so-called 'translocon' that is required for targeting of type III effectors in the cell cytosol.(More)
In Gram-negative bacteria, type II secretion systems (T2SS) assemble inner membrane proteins of the major pseudopilin PulG (GspG) family into periplasmic filaments, which could drive protein secretion in a piston-like manner. Three minor pseudopilins PulI, PulJ and PulK are essential for protein secretion in the Klebsiella oxytoca T2SS, but their molecular(More)
BACKGROUND All aerobically grown living cells are exposed to oxidative damage by reactive oxygen species (ROS). A major damage by ROS to proteins is caused by covalent modifications of methionine residues giving methionine sulfoxide (Met-SO). Methionine sulfoxide reductases are enzymes able to regenerate methionine and restore protein function after(More)
