Virulence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa involves the co-ordinate expression of a range of factors including type IV pili (tfp), the type III secretion system (TTSS) and quorum sensing. Tfp are required for twitching motility, efficient biofilm formation, and for adhesion and type III secretion (TTS)-mediated damage to mammalian cells. We describe a novel gene(More)
ExoT is a type III secreted effector protein found in almost all strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and is required for full virulence in an animal model of acute pneumonia. It is comprised of an N-terminal domain with GTPase activating protein (GAP) activity towards Rho family GTPases and a C-terminal ADP ribosyltransferase (ADPRT) domain with minimal(More)
Endonucleolytic cutting by the essential Escherichia coli ribonuclease RNaseE has a central role in both the processing and decay of RNA. Previously, it has been shown that an oligoribonucleotide corresponding in sequence to the single-stranded region at the 5' end of RNAI, the antisense regulator of ColE1-type plasmid replication, is efficiently cut by(More)
