None.

Description

This group represents a type III secretion machinery chaperone protein, YscY type. YscY from Yersinia pestis is required for Yop virulence proteins secretion. It probably functions as a chaperone which stabilises YscX within the cell, before its secretion [PMID: 10714987]. AscY is the homologue in Aeromonas salmonicida [PMID: 12374830].
