ORF information
ORF ID TF00496 (frame 1) Gene ID BRA0068
Position and sequences 65772...66089(105 aa) Gene Name/synonym virB2 /virB2s
Organism Brucella suis 1330 Cluster 9 genes
Product Type IV secretion system protein VirB2 homolog
1stcategory P-T4SS 2ndcategory VirB2/TrbC Family
3rdcategory Effector translocator
Function The VirB T4SS could be required for the establishment of the replication niche in the host. VirB2 could be a major component of the extracellular pilus, which probably mediates contact formation with the host cell.
Miscellaneus VirB system is specifically induced within macrophages by phagosome acidification. Induced at 37 degrees Celsius in minimal medium, suggesting that nutritional stress is a regulating signal. B. suis VirB proteins assemble into a T4SS-like complex in the heterologous host A. tumefaciens. A principal difference between the two organisms is that B. suis does not encode a VirD4 homolog, suggesting that the coupling of substrate transport may follow a different mechanism and may be similar to that of the B. pertussis T4SS
