The Secretion Signal of YopN, a Regulatory Protein of the Yersinia enterocolitica Type III Secretion Pathway† Academic Article uri icon


  • The type III secretion signal of Yersinia enterocolitica YopN was mapped using a gene fusion approach. yopN codons 1 to 12 were identified as critical for signal function. Several synonymous mutations that abolish secretion of hybrid proteins without altering the codon specificity of yopN mRNA were identified.
