The structural organization of the N-terminus domain of SopB, a virulence factor of Salmonella, depends on the nature of its protein partners.


The TTSS is used by Salmonella and many bacterial pathogens to inject virulence factors directly into the cytoplasm of target eukaryotic cells. Once translocated these so-called effector proteins hijack a vast array of crucial cellular functions to the benefit of the bacteria. In the bacterial cytoplasm, some effectors are stabilized and maintained in a… (More)
