Evidence for specificity in type 4 pilus biogenesis by enteropathogenic Escherichia coli.


Type 4 fimbriae (pili) are surface appendages that are expressed by many species of Gram-negative bacteria. Previous studies have demonstrated that Pseudomonas aeruginosa can express and assemble pilin subunits from several unrelated species, indicating a common mechanism for biogenesis of type 4 pili whereby structural subunits from one system may be… (More)
