The major adhesin of Bordetella pertussis, filamentous haemagglutinin (FHA), is produced and secreted at high levels by the bacterium. Mature FHA derives from a large precursor, FhaB, that undergoes several post-translational maturations. In this work, we demonstrate by site-directed mutagenesis that the N-terminal signal peptide of FHA is composed of 71… CONTINUE READING
