Abstract

Type III secretion systems (T3SS) are used by bacteria to deliver proteins into the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells. Most studies of T3SS have focused on the role of these secretion systems in specific host interactions. However, there is increasing evidence to suggest that T3SS are also used in interactions with multiple hosts, thereby promoting opportunistic infections and mutualistic symbioses.
