A gene encoding a fibronectin binding protein (FnBP) has recently been isolated and sequenced from Staphylococcus aureus strain 8325-4. In the same bacterial strain, 682 bp downstream to the stop codon of this gene (fnbA), a second gene termed fnbB has not been discovered, encoding another FnBP (FnBPB). The two genes show in large parts striking sequence homologies. The complete amino acid sequence encoded by fnbB has been deduced and compared to that deduced from fnbA. In FnBPB a stretch of 66… CONTINUE READING
