The RgpB C-terminal domain has a role in attachment of RgpB to the outer membrane and belongs to a novel C-terminal-domain family found in Porphyromonas gingivalis.
Porphyromonas gingivalis produces outer membrane-attached proteins that include the virulence-associated proteinases RgpA and RgpB (Arg-gingipains) and Kgp (Lys-gingipain). We analyzed the P.Expand

Protein substrates of a novel secretion system are numerous in the Bacteroidetes phylum and have in common a cleavable C-terminal secretion signal, extensive post-translational modification, and
The secretion of certain proteins in Porphyromonas gingivalis is dependent on a C-terminal domain (CTD). After secretion, the CTD is cleaved prior to extensive modification of the mature protein,Expand

Major outer membrane proteins and proteolytic processing of RgpA and Kgp of Porphyromonas gingivalis W50.
Porphyromonas gingivalis is an anaerobic, asaccharolytic Gram-negative rod associated with chronic periodontitis. We have undertaken a proteomic study of the outer membrane of P. gingivalis strainExpand

PG0026 Is the C-terminal Signal Peptidase of a Novel Secretion System of Porphyromonas gingivalis♦
Background: Several virulence factors of Porphyromonas gingivalis have a novel C-terminal signal that directs secretion across the outer membrane. Results: The predicted catalytic amino acid ofExpand

The outer membrane protein LptO is essential for the O‐deacylation of LPS and the co‐ordinated secretion and attachment of A‐LPS and CTD proteins in Porphyromonas gingivalis
Protein substrates of a novel secretion system of Porphyromonas gingivalis contain a conserved C‐terminal domain (CTD) essential for secretion and attachment to the cell surface. Inactivation of lptOExpand

Identification of a New Membrane-associated Protein That Influences Transport/Maturation of Gingipains and Adhesins of Porphyromonas gingivalis*
The dual membrane envelopes of Gram-negative bacteria provide two barriers of unlike nature that regulate the transport of molecules into and out of organisms. Organisms have developed severalExpand

Mass spectrometric analyses of peptides and proteins in human gingival crevicular fluid.
Gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) is a pathophysiological fluid that flows into the oral cavity. Human GCF was collected using sterile glass microcapillary tubes from inflamed periodontal sites inExpand

Porphyromonas gingivalis outer membrane vesicles exclusively contain outer membrane and periplasmic proteins and carry a cargo enriched with virulence factors.
Porphyromonas gingivalis, a keystone pathogen associated with chronic periodontitis, produces outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) that carry a cargo of virulence factors. In this study, the proteome ofExpand
