Complementary activities of SseJ and SifA regulate dynamics of the Salmonella typhimurium vacuolar membrane.


The Salmonella pathogenicity island 2 (SPI-2) type III secretion system (TTSS) of Salmonella typhimurium is required for bacterial replication within host cells. It acts by translocating effector proteins across the membrane of the Salmonella-containing vacuole (SCV). The SifA effector is required to maintain the integrity of the SCV membrane, and for the… (More)
