ProGP ID ProGP332
Validation Status Uncharacterized
Organism Information
Organism NameAggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans
Domain Bacteria
Classification Family: Pasteurellaceae
Order: Pasteurellales
Class: Gammaproteobacteria
Division or phylum: "Proteobacteria"
Gene Information
Gene NameemaA
Protein Information
Protein NameExtracellular matrix protein adhesin A (EmaA)
Subcellular LocationExtracellular
Function EmaA monomers trimerize to form antennae-like structures on the surface of the bacterium required for collagen binding.
Glycosylation Status
Glycosylation Type Information currently not available with us.
Glycosite Sequence Logo
Technique(s) used for Glycosylation DetectionLectin binding.
Glycan Information
Glycan Annotation Protein is associated with carbohydrate, and the carbohydrate is composed of sugars associated with the serotype b O-PS. The A. actinomycetemcomitans serotype b O-PS is a trisaccharide-repeating unit composed of D-Fuc, L-Rha, and D-GalNAc residues.Rha and Fuc were the main sugars identified in the analysis of the LPS isolated from the serotype b.
