ProGP ID ProGP545
Validation Status Uncharacterized
Organism Information
Organism NameStaphylococcus aureus strain 1061
Domain Bacteria
Classification Family:Staphylococcaceae
Order: Bacillales
Class: Bacilli
Division or phylum: "Firmicutes"
Taxonomic ID (NCBI) 1280
Genome Sequence(s)
Organism Additional Information S. aureus is a human pathogen responsible for life-threatening infections as it is able to attach to surfaces, form biofilms, and persist inside the host. It causes mild skin infections and even serious and life-threatening infections, such as endocarditis, osteomyelitis, pneumonia, meningitis, and sepsis.
Gene Information
Gene Namepls
Protein Information
Protein NamePls (Plasmin sensitive surface protein)
UniProtKB/SwissProt ID P80544
Sequence length 1637 AA
Subcellular LocationSurface
Function Pls is a virulence factor that reduces the adherence of S. aureus to Fg, Fn, or endothelial cells, internalization by human host cells and phagocytosis by polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) independently of its glycosylation status.
Glycosylation Status
Glycosylation Type O (Ser) linked
Glycosite Sequence Logo
Technique(s) used for Glycosylation DetectionPeriodic acid-Schiff staining
Protein Glycosylation- Implication Biofilm formation (in S. aureus Newman) is enhanced upon expression of GtfC/GtfD-glycosylated Pls that may contribute to MRSA (methicillin-resistant S. aureus) pathogenicity. The glycoprotein may serve as a future antibacterial target to combat or prevent infections.
Glycan Information
Glycan Annotation N-acetylhexosaminyl residues
Protein Glycosylation linked (PGL) gene(s)
OST ProGT IDProGT67, ProGT68
Characterized Accessory Gene(s)gtfC, gtfD, sdgA and sdgB
