Several large, cell wall-associated internalins and one small, secreted internalin (InlC) have been described previously in Listeria monocytogenes. Using degenerate primers derived from sequenced peptides of an L. ivanovii major secreted protein, we identified a new 4.25 kb internalin locus of L. ivanovii, termed i-inlFE. The two proteins encoded by this locus, i-InlE and i-InlF, belong to the group of small, secreted internalins. Southern blot analyses show that the i-inlFE locus does not… CONTINUE READING
