ABSTRACT Natural transformation has a large impact on lateral gene flow and has contributed significantly to the ecological… Expand Type IV pili are expressed from a wide variety of Gram‐negative bacteria and play a major role in host cell adhesion and… Expand The PilZ protein was originally identified as necessary for type IV pilus (T4P) biogenesis. Since then, a large and diverse… Expand ABSTRACT Type IV pili are surface-exposed retractable fibers which play a key role in the pathogenesis of Neisseria meningitidis… Expand PilF is a requisite protein involved in the type 4 pilus biogenesis system from the Gram-negative human pathogenic bacteria… Expand Colonization of the human small intestine by Vibrio cholerae requires the type 4 toxin co‐regulated pilus (TCP). Genes encoding… Expand ABSTRACT The Myxococcus xanthus sglA1 spontaneous mutation was originally isolated because it allowed dispersed cell growth in… Expand ABSTRACT Vibrio vulnificus expresses a number of potential virulence determinants that may contribute to its ability to cause a… Expand The toxin-coregulated pilus (TCP) of Vibrio cholerae is a type 4-related fimbrial adhesin and a useful model for the study of… Expand A new locus required for type 4 pilus biogenesis by Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been identified. A pilE mutant, designated MJ‐6… Expand
