The type IX secretion system (T9SS) was originally discovered in Porphyromonas gingivalis, one of the pathogenic bacteria associated with periodontal disease and is now known to be present in many members of the phylum Bacteroidetes. The T9SS secretes a number of potent virulence factors, including the highly hydrolytic proteases called gingipains, across the outer membrane in P. gingivalis. To understand the entire machinery of T9SS, an exhaustive search for T9SS-related genes in P. gingivalis… CONTINUE READING
