Role of EscU auto-cleavage in promoting type III effector translocation into host cells by enteropathogenic Escherichia coli

Abstract

Type III secretion systems (T3SS) of bacterial pathogens coordinate effector protein injection into eukaryotic cells. The YscU/FlhB group of proteins comprises members associated with T3SS which undergo a specific auto-cleavage event at a conserved NPTH amino acid sequence. The crystal structure of the C-terminal portion of EscU from enteropathogenic… (More)
