The receptor specificities of four Escherichia coli cloned hemagglutinins, AFA-I, AFA-III, F1845 fimbriae, and the Dr hemagglutinin were studied. Evidence is provided that all four hemagglutinins recognize as their receptor the Dr blood group antigen. However, results of experiments using enzyme-treated erythrocytes and monoclonal antibodies indicate that the four adhesins recognize different epitopes on the Dr antigen and thus constitute a family of Dr receptor-recognizing bacterial adhesins… CONTINUE READING
