It has been suggested that all Rhs systems are involved in intercellular growth inhibition, suggesting that the Rhs proteins are secreted from E. coli and that the variable C-terminal domains are toxic to neighboring cells when secreted to the outside of the cell (Koskiniemi, 2013). rhsD has been predicted to encode a polymorphic toxin and the downstream gene encodes YbbC, a predicted immunity protein (Zhang, 2012).
