The crystal structure of the pilus elongation complex in which the tip complex assembly composed of FimC, FimF, FimG and FimH passes through the usher porin FimD has been determined (Geibel, 2013). FimF is one of 25 FimA homologs in E. coli K-12. The first 22 aa of FimF are predicted to be a type I signal peptide.
