The type II secretion (T2S) system is present in many gram-negative species, both pathogenic and nonpathogenic, where it supports the delivery of a variety of toxins, proteases, and lipases into the extracellular environment. In Vibrio cholerae, the T2S apparatus is composed of 12 Eps proteins that assemble into a multiprotein complex that spans the entire cell envelope. Two of these proteins, EpsM and EpsL, are key components of the secretion machinery present in the inner membrane. In… CONTINUE READING
