Abstract

Type VI secretion systems (T6SS) have been studied primarily in the context of pathogenic bacteria-host interactions. Recent data suggest, however, that these versatile secretion systems may also function to promote commensal or mutualistic relationships between bacteria and eukaryotes or to mediate cooperative or competitive interactions between bacteria.
