The tyrosine phosphorylation of proteins has a central role during signal transduction in eukaryotes. Recent progress shows that tyrosine phosphorylation is also a common feature of several effector proteins translocated by bacterial type III and type IV secretion systems. The involvement of these secretion systems in disease development is exemplified by a variety of pathogenic processes: pedestal formation (Tir of EPEC and Citrobacter), cell scattering (CagA of Helicobacter), invasion (Tarp… CONTINUE READING
