Adhesive pili are hair-like appendages assembled via the chaperone-usher pathway (CUP) that mediate host tissue colonization and biofilm formation of Gram-negative bacteria 1-3. Archaic CUP pili, the most diverse and widespread CUP adhesins, are promising vaccine and drug targets due to their prevalence in the most troublesome multidrug-resistant (MDR) pathogens 1,4,5.
