Abstract [en]

Pathogenic Yersinia species use a type III secretion system to inhibit phagocytosis by eukaryotic cells. At 37 degrees C, the secretion system is assembled, forming a needle-like structure on the bacterial cell surface. Upon eukaryotic cell contact, six effector proteins, called Yops, are translocated into the eukaryotic cell cytosol. Here, we show that a yscP mutant exports an increased amount of the needle component YscF to the bacterial cell surface but is unable to efficiently secrete effector Yops. Mutations in the cytoplasmic domain of the inner membrane protein YscU suppress the yscP phenotype by reducing the level of YscF secretion and increasing the level of Yop secretion. These results suggest that YscP and YscU coordinately regulate the substrate specificity of the Yersinia type III secretion system. Furthermore, we show that YscP and YscU act upstream of the cell contact sensor YopN as well as the inner gatekeeper LcrG in the pathway of substrate export regulation. These results further strengthen the strong evolutionary link between flagellar biosynthesis and type III synthesis.

Abstract [en]

The pathogenic bacteria Yersinia pestis and Y. pseudotuberculosis are related to the degree where the former is considered a subspecies of the latter, and still they cause disease of little resemblance in humans. Y. pestis is the causative agent of lethal bubonic and pneumonic plague, while Y. pseudotuberculosis manifests itself as mild gastroenteritis. An important virulence determinant for these species is their ability to secrete and inject toxins (Yop effectors) into immune cells of the infected host, in a bacterium-cell contact dependent manner. This ability depends on the extensively studied type III secretion system, a highly complex multicomponent structure resembling a needle. The induction of Yop secretion is a strictly controlled event. The two structural type III secretion components YscU and YscP are here shown to play a crucial role in this process, which is suggested to require an YscP mediated conformational change of the C-terminus of YscU. Proteolytic cleavage of YscU within this domain is further revealed to be a prerequisite for functional Yop secretion. The needle subcomponent itself, YscF, is recognised as a regulatory element that controls the induction of Yop effectors and their polarised delivery into target cells. Potentially, the needle might act as a sensor that transmits the inducing signal (i.e. target cell contact) to activate the type III secretion system. Secondly a, for Yersinia, previously unexplored system, the Twin arginine translocation (Tat) pathway, is shown to be functional and absolutely required for virulence of Y. pseudotuberculosis. A range of putative Yersinia Tat substrates were predicted in silico, which together with the Tat system itself may be interesting targets for future development of antimicrobial treatments.
