Abstract

The bacterial type III secretion pathway delivers effector proteins into eukaryotic cells. Analysis of the type III system and flagellar export genes in the obligate parasites of the family Chlamydiales suggests that the type III system arose from the flagellar export system in chlamydiae or related bacteria.
