ABSTRACT Arg-gingipain (Rgp) and Lys-gingipain (Kgp) are Porphyromonas gingivalis cysteine proteinases implicated as major virulence factors in pathologies of periodontitis. We purified a 660-kDa cell-associated gingipain complex existing as a homodimer of two catalytically active monomers which comprises their catalytic and adhesin domains. Electron microscopy revealed that the complex was composed of a globular particle with a 10-nm external diameter possessing one or two electron-dense hole… Expand
Involvement of an Skp-Like Protein, PGN_0300, in the Type IX Secretion System of Porphyromonas gingivalis
TLDR
Results suggested that Omp17 is involved in P. gingivalis virulence, and the omp17 mutant was less virulent than the wild type in the mouse subcutaneous infection experiment. Expand

TLDR
The new domain model of the structure for gingipains and the haemagglutinin (HagA) proteins of P. gingivalis will guide future functional studies of these virulence factors. Expand
A Porphyromonas gingivalis Mutant Defective in a Putative Glycosyltransferase Exhibits Defective Biosynthesis of the Polysaccharide Portions of Lipopolysaccharide, Decreased Gingipain Activities, Strong Autoaggregation, and Increased Biofilm Formation
TLDR
A nonpigmented mutant that had an insertion mutation within the new gene PGN_1251 (gtfB) was isolated, suggesting that polysaccharide portions of LPSs influence attachment of gingipain proteinases to the cell surface, autoaggregation, and biofilm formation of P. gingivalis. Expand
Structure determination and analysis of a haemolytic gingipain adhesin domain from Porphyromonas gingivalis
TLDR
The data indicate a functional role for K2 in the integrated capacity conferred by Kgp to enable the porphyrin auxotroph P. gingivalis to capture essential haem from erythrocytes. Expand
A role for gingipains in cellular responses and bacterial survival in Porphyromonas gingivalis-infected cells.
TLDR
Recent knowledge on the pathophysiological role of gingipains in the virulence of P. gingivalis is summarized including host cell responses to bacterial infection and its evasion from host defense mechanisms. Expand
Clathrin‐dependent entry of a gingipain adhesin peptide and Porphyromonas gingivalis into host cells
TLDR
Interactions initiated by P.’gingivalis and by a peptide derived from the adhesin domain of arg‐gingipain A support a working model in which A44 initiates a clathrin‐dependent pathway that potentially leads to internalization of peptide or bacteria by host epithelial cells. Expand
Effect of deletion of the rgpA gene on selected virulence of Porphyromonas gingivalis
TLDR
The data indicate that an rgpA gene deficient strain of P. gingivalis is successfully isolated and that RgpA may have a variety of physiological and pathological roles in the organism. Expand
Characterization of proteinase-adhesin complexes of Porphyromonas gingivalis.
TLDR
The Triton-wt complex induced a stronger antibody response to the A1 adhesins and tended to be more effective in providing protection in the mouse lesion model compared with the sonication-wtcomplex. Expand
Role for Gingipains in Porphyromonas gingivalis Traffic to Phagolysosomes and Survival in Human Aortic Endothelial Cells
TLDR
It is found that the number of intracellular viable WT cells decreased more slowly than that of KDP136 cells, thus suggesting that gingipains contribute to bacterial survival, but not to trafficking, within the infected cells. Expand

A cell-associated protein complex of Porphyromonas gingivalis W50 composed of Arg- and Lys-specific cysteine proteinases and adhesins.
TLDR
It is proposed that this proteinase-adhesin complex is a major virulence factor for P. gingivalis involved in the evasion of host defence and in the assimilation of haem and peptides. Expand
Biochemical and functional properties of lysine-specific cysteine proteinase (Lys-gingipain) as a virulence factor of Porphyromonas gingivalis in periodontal disease.
TLDR
Results suggest that Lys-gingipain plays a crucial role as a virulence factor from P. gingivalis in the development of periodontal disease via the direct destruction ofperiodontal tissue components and the disruption of normal host defense mechanisms. Expand
Proteolysis of Human Monocyte CD14 by Cysteine Proteinases (Gingipains) from Porphyromonas gingivalis Leading to Lipopolysaccharide Hyporesponsiveness1
TLDR
It is suggested that gingipains preferentially cleave monocyte CD14, resulting in attenuation of the cellular recognition of bacteria, and as a consequence sustain chronic inflammation. Expand
Arg-Gingipain Is Responsible for the Degradation of Cell Adhesion Molecules of Human Gingival Fibroblasts and Their Death Induced by Porphyromonas gingivalis
TLDR
It is suggested that Rgp disrupts the integrinfibronectin interactions in fibroblasts, thereby contributing to the damage of periodontal tissues inperiodontal diseases caused by P. gingivalis. Expand
Roles for Arg- and Lys-Gingipains in the Disruption of Cytokine Responses and Loss of Viability of Human Endothelial Cells by Porphyromonas gingivalis Infection
TLDR
Findings indicate that P. gingivalis modulates the cytokine response in the cells and disrupts the adhesion activity and the viability through the cooperative action of Rgp and Kgp and thereby may contribute to pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases as well as periodontal disease. Expand
Variable Carbohydrate Modifications to the Catalytic Chains of the RgpA and RgpB Proteases of Porphyromonas gingivalis W50
TLDR
The catalytic chains of this unusual group of enzymes are shown to be differentially modified by the posttranslational addition of carbohydrate, indicating that these protease isoforms are modified not only to different extents but also with different sugars. Expand
Molecular Cloning and Structural Characterization of the Arg-gingipain Proteinase of Porphyromonas gingivalis
TLDR
Cloned and characterized a gene that encodes the 50-kDa cysteine proteinase gingipain or Arg-gingipain-1 (RGP-1) showed that the biosynthesis of this proteinase involves processing of a polyprotein that contains multiple adhesin molecules located at its carboxyl terminus. Expand

A KGP-deficient mutant is constructed to determine whether the cell-associated KGP is important for pathophysiology of the organism and in the bleeding tendency in periodontal pockets. Expand
Major outer membrane proteins and proteolytic processing of RgpA and Kgp of Porphyromonas gingivalis W50.
TLDR
A proteomic study of the outer membrane of P. gingivalis strain W50 using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and peptide mass fingerprinting found electrophoretic behaviour of these proteins, together with their immunoreactivity with a monoclonal antibody that recognizes lipopolysaccharide, is consistent with a modification that could anchor the proteins to the outer membranes.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that Arg-gingipain makes a significant contribution to the virulence of P. gingivalis, and a major part of the hemagglutinin activity of the organism is associated with the two genes. Expand
