Staphylococcus epidermidis can express three different cell-surface-associated proteins, designated SdrF, SdrG and SdrH, that contain serine-aspartate dipeptide repeats. Proteins SdrF and SdrG are similar in sequence and structural organization to the Sdr proteins of Staphylococcus aureus and comprise unique 625- and 548-residue A regions at their N termini, respectively, followed by 110-119-residue B-repeat regions and SD-repeat regions. The C termini contain LPXTG motifs and hydrophobic amino… CONTINUE READING
