The nucleotide sequence of faeE and fanE, two genes involved in the biosynthesis of K88 and K99 fimbriae, respectively, was determined and the amino acid sequence of the FaeE and FanE proteins was deduced. Immunoblotting of subcellular fractions with an antiserum raised against purified FaeE confirmed that FaeE is located in the periplasm. Indications were… CONTINUE READING
