yfcQ is part of the yfcOPQRU'V cryptic chaperone–usher fimbrial operon; constitutive expression of yfcOPQRU'V in a delta fim background increases adherence to T24 human bladder carcinoma cells tenfold (Korea, 2010). YfcQ is one of 25 FimA homologs in E. coli K-12. The first 18 aa of YfcQ are predicted to be a type I signal peptide.
