The role attributed to the vesicles is a virulence mechanism similar to periplasmic enzyme, which is exported by STEC O157 and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (11,15) or used for DNA transportation (12-14) or as a bacterial virulence factor like adherence and evasion of the immune system, (10) and also as a component for biofilms matrices.
24) (1996) reported that the zinc ATP-binding cassette transporter periplasmic zinc-binding protein (znuA and mannose-6-phosphateisomerase [manA]) was correlated with the virulence of Brucella and showed that these genes were more common in B.

Using a genetic approach ndvB mutant of Pseudomonas aeuroginosa have been isolated which is capable of forming biofilm but lacking the characteristic of periplasmic glucans, thereby, rendering microbial communities in biofilm more susceptible to conventional antibiotic therapy.
Furthermore, there is hydroxylamine oxidoreductase (HOA) enzyme, located in the periplasmic membrane which has a role in transforming NH2OH into N[O.
