CommentPilus systems categorized as type IV pilins differ greatly from one another, with some showing greater similarty to type II or type III secretion systems than to each other. Members of this protein family represent the PilV protein of type IV pilus systems as found in Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1, Pseudomonas syringae DC3000, Neisseria meningitidis MC58, Xylella fastidiosa 9a5c, etc.
