A 2,813-bp HincII-ClaI DNA fragment encodes the two S and F components (LukS-R and LukF-R) of leucocidin R (Luk-R) which are secreted by Staphylococcus aureus P83. The two genes (lukS-R and lukF-R) belong to a single operon. Two peptidic sequences were deduced: LukS-R is a 35,721-Da polypeptide of 315 amino acids, including a signal sequence of 29 residues, and LukF-R is a 36,838-Da polypeptide of 325 amino acids, including a signal sequence of 25 residues. LukS-R and LukF-R were expressed in… CONTINUE READING
