We investigated the binding sites of salivary statherin involved in the interaction with Porphyromonas gingivalis recombinant fimbrillin (r-Fim). Synthetic peptides representing statherin analogs were used to localize the binding domains of statherin. Peptide F4 (residues 29 to 43) significantly bound to r-Fim and inhibited r-Fim binding to statherin-coated hydroxyapatite beads. Successive peptides in which pairs of amino acid residues were deleted starting at the N terminus of peptide F4 were… CONTINUE READING
