Recent structural studies and analyses of microbial genomes have consolidated the understanding of the structural and functional versatility of coiled-coil domains in proteins from bacterial type III secretion systems (T3SS). Such domains consist of two or more α-helices forming a bundle structure. The occurrence of coiled-coils in T3SS is considerably… CONTINUE READING
