Disease relevance of VV1_1977

  • The cloned V. cholerae peptidase processes either EpsI or MshA preproteins when co-expressed in E. coli [1].
  • The type IV leader peptidase/N-methyltransferase of Vibrio vulnificus controls factors required for adherence to HEp-2 cells and virulence in iron-overloaded mice [2].
  • We have cloned and characterized two genes encoding products related to components of the type IV pilus biogenesis and general secretory (type II) pathways by complementation of a type IV peptidase/N-methyltransferase (PilD) mutant of Pseudomonas aeruginosa with a V. vulnificus genomic library [2].

High impact information on VV1_1977

  • Mutation of the V. cholerae peptidase gene also results in a defect in virulence and decreased levels of OmpU [1].
  • Plasmid disruption or deletion of this peptidase gene in either EI Tor or classical V. cholerae O1 biotype strains results in a dramatic decrease in cholera toxin secretion [1].
  • The peptidase activity of alpha 2 M-VVP complex was inhibited by low-molecular-weight inhibitors such as phosphoramidon, but IgG antibody against VVP failed to neutralize its peptidase activity [3].
