CommentMembers of this family include YscP of the Yersinia type III secretion system and equivalent proteins in other animal pathogen bacterial type III secretion systems. The model describes the conserved C-terminal region. N-terminal regions are poorly conserved and variable in length with some low-complexity sequence.
