The type III protein secretion system (TTSS) is a complex organelle in the envelope of many Gram-negative bacteria; it delivers potentially hundreds of structurally diverse bacterial virulence proteins into plant and animal cells to modulate host cellular functions. Recent studies have revealed several basic features of this secretion system, including assembly of needle/pilus-like secretion structures, formation of putative translocation pores in the host membrane, recognition of N-terminal/5… CONTINUE READING
