In this study, we showed that the cell wall anchor of protein A from Staphylococcus aureus is functional in the food-grade organism Lactococcus lactis. A fusion protein composed of the lactococcal Usp45 secretion signal peptide, streptavidin monomer, and the S. aureus protein A anchor became covalently attached to the peptidoglycan when expressed in L. lactis. The streptavidin moiety of the fusion protein was functionally exposed at the cellular surface. L. lactis cells expressing the anchored… CONTINUE READING
