Organism Helicobacter pylori 26695 Cluster 68 genes
Product Type IV secretion system protein VirB4 homolog
1stcategory P-T4SS 2ndcategory VirB4/TrbE/CagE Family
3rdcategory Effector translocator
Function Component of the type IV secretion system Cag/Vir, which is enconded in the cag patogenicity island PAI. The type IV secretion system Cag/Vir translocates the immunodominant antigen CagA protein into the cytosol of gastric epithelial cells. CagE is the inner membrane-localized ATPase that may provide the energy for substrate translocation.
