Arg-gingipains are extracellular cysteine proteases produced by the gram-negative periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis and are encoded by rgpA and rgpB. Three Arg-gingipains, heterodimeric high-molecular-mass Arg-gingipain HRgpA comprising the alpha-catalytic chain and the beta-adhesin chain, the monomeric soluble Arg-gingipain comprising only the alpha-catalytic chain (RgpA(cat)), and the monomeric membrane-type heavily glycosylated Arg-gingipain comprising the alpha-catalytic chain… CONTINUE READING
