Superfamily: Type VI secretion system, lipoprotein SciN

Structural domains comprising this superfamily share the structure of the type VI secrection system (T6SS) lipoprotein SciN, essential for T6S-dependent secretion of the Hcp-like SciD protein and for biofilm formation. SciN is tethered to the outer membrane and exposed in the periplasm.

Alternative names for this lipoproteins include SciN and Lip.
