PstS and DING proteins are members of a superfamily of secreted, high-affinity phosphate-binding proteins. Whereas microbial PstS have a well-defined role in phosphate ABC transporters, the physiological function of DING proteins, named after their DINGGG N termini, still needs to be determined. PstS and DING proteins co-exist in some Pseudomonas strains, to which they confer a highly adhesive and virulent phenotype. More than 30 DING proteins have now been purified, mostly from eukaryotes… CONTINUE READING
