Type III secretion protein HrpF (IPR009371)

Short name: T3SS_HrpF

Family relationships

None.

Description

The species Pseudomonas syringae encompasses plant pathogens with differing host specificities and corresponding pathovar designations. P. syringae requires the Hrp (type III protein secretion) system, encoded by a 25-kb cluster of hrp and hrc genes, in order to elicit the hypersensitive response (HR) in nonhosts or to be pathogenic in hosts. The exact function of HrpF is unknown but the protein is needed for pathogenicity [PMID: 9721291].
