The YscC protein of Yersinia enterocolitica is essential for the secretion of anti-host factors, called Yops, into the extracellular environment. It belongs to a family of outer membrane proteins, collectively designated secretins, that participate in a variety of transport processes. YscC has been shown to exist as a stable oligomeric complex in the outer membrane. The production of the YscC complex is regulated by temperature and is reduced in strains carrying mutations in the yscN-U operon… CONTINUE READING
