Organism NamePorphyromonas gingivalis W50
Domain Bacteria
Classification Family: Porphyromonadaceae
Order: Bacteroidales
Class: Bacteroidia
Division or phylum: "Bacteroidetes"
Taxonomic ID (NCBI) 837
Genome Sequence(s)
GenBank AF017059
EMBL AF017059
Organism Additional Information Porphyromonas gingivalis is a Gram-negative anaerobic bacterium responsible for causing adult periodontal disease, a chronic inflammatory condition of the periodontal tissues. It is the source of a number of virulence factors that are thought to be important for deregulation of innate and inflammatory systems in the host.
Protein Information
Protein NameHRgpA
Subcellular LocationExtracellular
Function Cysteine proteases cause the degradation of several physiologically important proteins, including collagens, fibrin and fibrinogen and fibronectin. They also account for deregulatory effects on several host systems and are therefore considered important virulence determinants. The adhesin domains of Arg-gingipains mediate the adherence of P. gingivalis to epithelial cells.
Glycosylation Status
Technique(s) used for Glycosylation DetectionCarbohydrate determination by methanolysis and GC-MS after beta-elimination.
Glycan Information
Glycan Annotation Rha, Man, Gal, Glc, GalN(Ac), and GlcN(Ac) (i.e.,lacking Ara, Fuc, and NANA) totalling 2.1% by weight of protein.
