Comments The epsilon proteobacteria possess lolA but apparently they do not have lolB. Further characterization is needed to assess to which protein the outer membrane lipoproteins are translocated (the same applies to the animal symbionts Candidatus Blochmannia floridanus and Wigglesworthia glossinidia brevipalpis).
