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). FimG is one of 25 FimA homologs in E. coli K-12. fimG is induced during biofilm formation. The first 23 aa of FimG are predicted to be a type I signal peptide.
