Flagellar protein FliT (IPR008622)

Short name: FliT

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents the bacterial flagellar FliT family of dual-function proteins. Together with FlgN, FliT has been proposed to act as a substrate-specific export chaperone, facilitating the incorporation of the enterobacterial hook-associated axial proteins (HAPs) FlgK/FlgL and FliD into the growing flagellum [PMID: 11169117]. FliT has also been shown to act as a transcriptional regulator in Salmonella typhimurium [PMID: 10791024].
