The AAA (ATPase associated with various cellular activities) p97 [also known as VCP (valosin-containing protein)] participates in numerous biological activities and is an essential component of the ubiquitin signalling pathway. A plethora of adaptors have been reported for p97, and increasing evidence is suggesting that it is through adaptor binding that(More)
p97, also known as valosin-containing protein, is a versatile participant in the ubiquitin-proteasome system. p97 interacts with a large network of adaptor proteins to process ubiquitylated substrates in different cellular pathways, including endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation and transcription factor activation. p97 and its adaptor Fas-associated(More)
Gingivitis and periodontitis are chronic inflammatory diseases that can lead to tooth loss. One of the causes of these diseases is the Gram-negative Porphyromonas gingivalis. This periodontal pathogen is dependent on two fimbriae, FimA and Mfa1, for binding to dental biofilm, salivary proteins, and host cells. These fimbriae are composed of five proteins(More)
