Summary: © 2002 Blackwell Science Ltd
The ShcA protein is a molecular chaperone that
assists in the secretion of the HopPsyA effector
from the type III (Hrp) protein secretion
system of Pseudomonas syringae
ShcA represents the first demonstrated chaperone
used in a type III secretion system of a bacterial plant
pathogen. We searched known P. syringae type
III-related genes for neighbouring ORFs that shared
the general characteristics of type III chaperones and
identified five additional candidate type III chaper-
ones. Therefore, it is likely that chaperones are as
prevalent in bacterial plant pathogen type III systems
as they are in their animal pathogenic counterparts.
Introduction
Type III protein secretion systems are present in many
Gram-negative pathogens of both plants and animals
(Hueck, 1998; Galán and Collmer, 1999; Cornelis and van
Gijsegem, 2000). These secretion systems are particu-
larly noteworthy because they can translocate effector
