Abstract

The toxin-co-regulated pilus (TCP), an important colonization factor of Vibrio cholerae, is similar to the type 4 pilus produced by a variety of pathogenic Gram-negative bacteria. The putative translocation and assembly machinery of TCP has broad similarities with known pilin and nonpilin export mechanisms.
