BipD-like superfamily (IPR036708)

Short name: BipD-like_sf

Overlapping entries


IpaD from Shigella flexneri and BipD from Burkholderia pseudomallei are two proteins that sit at the tip of the needle of type III secretion system and are essential for virulence [PMID: 17077085]. Their structures are highly homologous. They consist of a bundle of antiparallel alpha-helical segments with two small beta-sheet regions [PMID: 16950399].
