The genus Legionella comprises over 60 species, which are important human pathogens. Secretion systems in Legionella pneumophila have been studied extensively because of the essential role of protein secretion in bacterial infection. However, there are few reports describing the secretion systems in non-L. pneumophila species. In this study, we analyzed the distribution of secretion systems in L. pneumophila and 18 species of non-L. pneumophila based on whole genome sequences. A total of 74… CONTINUE READING
