Cholera toxin secretion is dependent upon the extracellular protein secretion apparatus encoded by the eps gene locus of Vibrio cholerae. Although the eps gene locus encodes several type four prepilin-like proteins, the peptidase responsible for processing these proteins has not been identified. This report describes the identification of a prepilin peptidase from the V. cholerae genomic database by virtue of its homology with the PilD prepilin peptidase of Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
