Destabilization of YopE by the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway fine-tunes Yop delivery into host cells and facilitates systemic spread of Yersinia enterocolitica in host lymphoid tissue.


Pathogenic Yersinia species inject a panel of Yop virulence proteins by type III protein secretion into host cells to modulate cellular defense responses. This enables the survival and dissemination of the bacteria in the host lymphoid tissue. We have previously shown that YopE of the Y. enterocolitica serogroup O8 is degraded in the host cell through the… (More)
