Yersinia pestis, the causative agent of plague, exports a set of virulence proteins called Yops upon contact with eukaryotic cells. A subset of these Yops is translocated directly into the cytosol of host cells. In this study, a novel protein tag-based reporter system is used to measure the translocation of Yops into cultured eukaryotic cells. The reporter system uses a small bipartite phosphorylatable peptide tag, termed the Elk tag. Translocation of an Elk-tagged protein into eukaryotic cells… CONTINUE READING
