YcbQ has been characterized as a laminin-binding fimbrin subunit in E. coli O157:H7 strain EDL933 and renamed as ElfA; ycbQ is in the ycbQRST operon, which has been renamed as the elfADCG operon (Samadder, 2009). Probable false positive lipoprotein prediction, Cys not conserved. The first 26 aa of ElfD constitute a predicted type I signal peptide. YcbR has Ig-like domains: pfam PF00345 aligns to N-terminal residues 31-149, and pfam PF02753 aligns to C-terminal residues 154-227.
