Amino acid alignment of intimin, ifp and invasion. The C-terminal 280 residues of EPEC 2348/69 intimin (Int280) and the corresponding regions from Y. pseudotuberculosis IP32953 Ifp and invasin were aligned. Residues important in intimin function are shown: conserved cysteine residues are highlighted in light grey whilst tryptophan residues are highlighted in dark grey.
