Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), the glycolytic enzyme, exists as an asymmetric homotetramer and is apparently a product of a single somatic gene. This protein is considered a moonlighting protein meaning that it exhibits functions typically ascribed to other proteins. The functions include cellular processes that involve gene expression(More)
Pathogens generate molecules, or virulence factors, that enable them to colonize host tissues through several mechanisms, including adhesion to host tissues, or superior invasive capability. Some allow the pathogen to evade the host's immune system. Many of these molecules are proteins that are exported to the cell's surface or secreted. Curiously, GAPDH,(More)
