Molecular analysis of neisserial Opa protein interactions with the CEA family of receptors: identification of determinants contributing to the differential specificities of binding.


The carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) gene family members, CEACAM1, CEACAM3, CEACAM5 and CEACAM6, are bound by the Opa outer membrane proteins of pathogenic Neisseria spp., whereas CEACAM8 is not. In this study, we demonstrate that the closely related CEACAM4 and CEACAM7, which are also members of the CEA family, are not Opa receptors. We exploited the high… (More)
