Functional analysis of a murine monoclonal antibody against the repetitive region of the fibronectin-binding adhesins fibronectin-binding protein A and fibronectin-binding protein B from Staphylococcus aureus.

Abstract

Fibronectin-binding proteins A and B are multifunctional LPXTG staphylococcal adhesins, comprising an N-terminal region that binds fibrinogen and elastin, and a C-terminal domain that interacts with fibronectin. The C-terminal domain of fibronectin-binding protein A is organized into 11 tandem repeats, six of which bind the ligand with high affinity; other… (More)
