Protein secretion systems in bacterial pathogens


Many bacterial pathogens utilize specialized secretion systems to deliver virulence factors into the extracellular milieu. These exported effectors act to manipulate various processes of targeted cells in order to create a suitable niche for bacterial growth. Currently, seven different types of secretion system have been described, of which Type I–VI are… (More)
