Typical enteropathogenic Escherichia coli strains express an established virulence factor belonging to the type IV pili family, called the bundle-forming pilus (BFP). BFP are present on the cell surface as bundled filamentous appendages, and are assembled and retracted by proteins encoded by the bfp operon. These proteins assemble to form a molecular machine. The BFP machine may be conceptually divided into three components: the cytoplasmic membrane (CM) subassembly, which is composed of CM… CONTINUE READING
