The Type IX secretion system membrane protein (PorP/SprF) Family [Function: Biogenesis/Secretion] Seed alignment | Full alignment | Pfam page | TC-DB page
SprP is associated with the outer membrane of Cytophaga hutchinsonii. It is suggested that SprP is involved in protein secretion, a hypothesis made due to its sequence similarity with PorP that is responsible for the secretion of gingipain protease virulence factors in Porphyromonas gingivalis type IX secretion system (T9SS) and SprF that is crucial for the delivery of the gliding motility machinery components to the cell surface.
