Enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) belongs to a family of pathogens that cause attaching and effacing (A/E) lesion on target cells. The EspB protein of EHEC is translocated both to the host cell cytoplasm and to the membrane, and is essential for the signalling events leading to A/E lesion. To determine the actual role of EspB in this process, we tried to identify the EspB binding partner of the host cell protein, using a yeast two-hybrid assay, and obtained a cytoskeletal-associated… CONTINUE READING
