Pro13 is essential for the quaternary stability of CFA/I pili. Mutation of Pro13 to phenyl­alanine in CfaB changed the force required to unwind the quaternary structure of a pilus. (a) Force response of a single wild type CFA/I pilus (black) and of a single mutated CFA/I pilus (blue). (b) Histogram of the wild type (gray) and mutant (blue) unwinding forces. (c) Extension (black) and rewinding (light blue) of a single mutated CFA/I pilus.
