[…] using a screening approach based on the profile hidden markov model (phmm) method., annotations of available t6ss clusters and their components in some bacterial genomes were obtained from the secret6 database ( (). to annotate t6ss clusters in the remaining uncharacterized genomes, we extracted nucleotide sequences from the public sequence database […]

[…] related t6sss (, ). a phylogeny of the tssb protein was constructed using representative sequences from s. alvi and g. apicola, as well as reference sequences from the ncbi refseq database. the secret6 database () was used to identify proteins associated with previously identified t6ss subtypes. cd-hit () was used to cluster s. alvi and g. apicola tssb sequences by 95% similarity, […]

[…] of group 14, from a wide variety of bacterial species, are genes that encode uncharacterized yjbi-like proteins. yjbi consists of multiple pentapeptide repeats of unknown function. according to the secret6 database (), the genes from this group are frequently located in genomic regions occupied by genes encoding the type 6 secretion system (t6ss). the his-me finger may therefore constitute […]

[…] secreted proteins, thought to be translocated directly into the host cell cytosol. they can target eukaryotic cells () or bacterial cells () depending of their function. we used a combination of secret6 database searches () and t6ss associated domains defined in the literature to scan the genomes for putative t6ss effectors. we identified 33 putative t6ss effector families (supplementary […]
