Abstract: Pathogenic yersiniae deliver a number of different effector molecules, which are referred to as Yops, into the cytosol of eukaryotic cells via a type III secretion system. To identify the regions of YopE from Yersinia pseudotuberculosis that are necessary for its translocation across the bacterial and eukaryotic cellular membranes, we constructed a series of hybrid genes which consisted of various amounts of yopE fused to the adenylate cyclase-encoding domain of the cyclolysin gene (cyaA) of Bordetella pertus…
