A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Genes required for entry of Shigella flexneri into epithelial cells in vitro are clustered in two adjacent loci, one of which encodes secretory proteins, the IpaA-D proteins, and the other their dedicated secretion apparatus, the Mxi-Spa translocon. Ipa secretion, which is induced upon contact of bacteria with epithelial cells, is prevented during growth in vitro. Here, we show that ipaB and ipaD mutations lead to enhanced secretion of a set of about 15 proteins. These extracellular proteins and some Ipas associate in organized structures consisting of extended sheets. Growth of the wild-type strain in the presence of Congo red is shown to induce protein secretion through the Mxi-Spa translocon. Cultures grown to stationary phase in the presence of Congo red contain extracellular filaments whose composition and morphology are similar to those produced by the hypersecreting ipaB and ipaD mutants.
