I. Summary
SecReT6 ID907 experimental
StrainBacteroides fragilis NCTC 9343
Repliconchromosome [Browse all T6SS(s) in this replicon]
CommentBacteroides fragilis targets B. thetaiotaomicron via T6SS; deletion of tssC in B. fragilis renders this species largely unable to reduce B. thetaiotaomicron growth.
T6SS TypeType iii
experimental Experimental investigation has been performed on this T6SS.
