Abstract

Analysis of the nucleotide sequence of a 4-kb DNA fragment located between the sip and iag loci on Salmonella typhi chromosome revealed three open reading frames, termed sipF, ctpA and stpA. The 82-amino-acid (aa) sipF product showed extensive similarity to the lacP protein from S. typhimurium. The StpA protein (535 aa) exhibited significant similarity to both Yersinia enterocolitica YopE cytotoxin and YopH tyrosine phosphatase. The CtpA polypeptide (130 aa) might be the molecular chaperone of the StpA protein.
