The Pfam group coordinates the annotation of Pfam families in Wikipedia, but we have not yet assigned a Wikipedia article to this family. If you think that a particular Wikipedia article provides good annotation, please let us know.
Type II secretion system (T2SS), protein M subtype b Provide feedback
The T2SMb family is conserved in Proteobacteria and Actinobacteria, and differs from the T2SM proteins in Vibrio spp. (PF04612).

InterPro entry IPR007690Type II secretion system protein M is a membrane protein involved in the export of proteins in bacteria. It consists of a short cytosolic N-terminal domain, a transmembrane domain, and a C-terminal periplasmic domain. The precise function of this protein is unknown, though in Vibrio cholerae, the EpsM protein interacts with the EpsL protein, and also forms homodimers [PUBMED:10322014],

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request
