Streptomyces scabies is a model organism for the investigation of plant-microbe interactions in Gram-positive bacteria. Here, we investigate the type VII protein secretion system (T7SS) in S. scabies; the T7SS is required for the virulence of other Gram-positive bacteria, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Staphylococcus aureus. The hallmarks of a functional T7SS are an EccC protein that forms an essential component of the secretion apparatus and two small, sequence-related substrate… CONTINUE READING
