    ..Thus, CTXphi, like the E. coli filamentous phages, uses both a pilus and TolQRA to enter its host. This suggests that the pathway for filamentous phage entry into cells is conserved between host bacterial species...

    ..Protein fusions between DegP and alkaline phosphatase had high alkaline phosphatase enzymatic activity, indicating that DegP is a periplasmic or membrane protein. ..
