Abstract

Summary

, the causative agent of melioidosis, contains a cluster of putative genes homologous to those encoding HpaP, HrcQ, HrcR, HrcS and HrpV in the plant pathogen . In , these genes form part of a type III secretion-associated pathogenicity island. The order of the genes in is directly equivalent to that found in . The proteins share 49.5% (HpaP), 52.6% (HrcQ), 80.0% (HrcR), 72.1% (HrcS) and 46.7% (HrpV) similarity, respectively, with their equivalent proteins. The presence of type III secretion-associated genes in pathogens suggests a possible role for type III secretion systems in the pathogenicity of this organism.
