Putative gene yehK is restricted to E. coli and Shigella strains, including many truncated versions and the presence of in-frame stop codons. yehK was not originally annotated as a gene but was added later based on a GeneMark.hmm 2.4 prediction of an atypical protein coding region. An insertion in a version of yehK in EPEC E. coli blocks interference with host functions, but may be affecting the downstream gene yehL (Nadler, 2006).
