Bacteria of the genus Listeria contain the largest family of LPXTG surface proteins covalently anchored to the peptidoglycan. The extent to which these proteins may function or be regulated cooperatively is at present unknown. Because of their unique cellular location, we reasoned that distinct LPXTG proteins could act as elements contributing to cell wall homeostasis or influencing the stability of other surface proteins bound to peptidoglycan. To test this hypothesis, we used proteomics to… CONTINUE READING
