The target cell genus does not matter.


Two type VI secreted phospholipases D of Pseudomonas aeruginosa were identified as trans-kingdom virulence effectors, targeting both prokaryotic and eukaryotic host cells. Each of them triggers killing bacterial competitors and internalization into non-phagocytic cells. These type VI lipolytic enzymes are widely distributed among pathogens and may constitute a conserved strategy.
