The Staphylococcus aureus Map protein was proposed to act as a multifunctional adhesin. Using a map- mutant, a complemented strain and recombinant Map, we demonstrated that Map was not a conventional adhesin and was not involved in binding soluble extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins and in staphylococcal adherence to immobilized ECM proteins. However, Map… CONTINUE READING
