Receptor specificities of the three recognized variants of PapG, the major adhesin of uropathogenic Escherichia coli, have been deduced in part from the distinctive hemagglutination (HA) patterns these adhesins ostensibly exhibit with different erythrocytes. A comprehensive reevaluation of these HA patterns using sheep, rabbit, and diverse human erythrocytes revealed that the erythrocyte binding ranges of the three PapG variants are broader and more overlapping than generally recognized… CONTINUE READING
