Biochemistry of type IV secretion

Curr Opin Microbiol. 1999 Feb;2(1):25-9. doi: 10.1016/s1369-5274(99)80004-6.

Abstract

In the past year, our knowledge of type IV transporters of Gram-negative bacteria has further expanded. Advances include the discovery of additional members of this family of proteins, increased knowledge of the morphologies of type IV transporters, and a better understanding of the mechanisms by which macromolecules are exported by these systems.
