CsgF is a surface-exposed lipoprotein component of the CsgEFG OM secretion complex required for CsgB-mediated nucleation of the assembly of the curlin CsgA into curli; a csgF mutant secretes CsgA away from the cell (Chapman, 2002; Robinson, 2006; Nenninger, 2009). Overexpression of csgF causes abnormal biofilm architecture. The predicted 19 aa signal peptide of CsgF is consistent with an observed secB-dependent precursor cleavage that is blocked by azide (Marani, 2006).
