Genome Sequence(s)
Organism Additional Information Escherichia coli (Gram-negative) is the predominant facultative organism in the human intestine. It is responsible for a number of diseases like urinary tract infections, gastroenteritis (diarrhoea), meningitis, traveler's diarrhea andhemorrhagic colitis. There are a myriad of serotypes of pathogenic E. coli. Adhesion to the host cells is an important step in its pathogenesis. However, most strains are harmless and normal flora residing in the gut.
Protein Information
Protein NameEnvelope specific glycoprotein
Subcellular LocationSurface
Additional Comment4% carbohydrate associated with glycoprotein, rapid incorporation of N-Acetylaglucosamine into the glycoprotein and amount of incorporation is not reduced by an excess of amino acid in the medium.
