The T4SS Operon Structures The A. ^^ The virB operon codes for 11 genes, virBl to virBll. The VirB proteins, termed the mating pair formation (mpf) proteins, build a cell envelope-spanning structure required for substrate transfer, and an extracellular filament, the T pilus that mediates attachment to recipient cells. ^^ The virD operon encodes five genes, virDl to virD5. virDl and wrZ)2 encode gene products processing the DNA substrate (T-DNA) for transfer. These are named the DNA transfer and repUcation (Dtr) proteins.

One mechanism is exerted by the synthesis of a plasmid encoded inhibitor peptide, iCFlO in the case of pCFlO, which neutralizes endogenously produced pheromone in the culture medium. ^^'^o The level of iCFlO in donor cultures has been found to be 10-100-fold above the pheromone level. This molar ratio is just sufficient to neutralize the cCFlO activity released by the same cells. The inhibitor peptides are very similar to each other and to the inducing pheromones. They are 7-8 aa hydrophobic peptides likely being processed from 22 to 23 aa precursors.
