EMBL CP000255
Gene Information
Gene NamesraP
Protein Information
Protein NameSraP (serine-rich adhesin for platelets)
UniProtKB/SwissProt ID Q2FUW1
Sequence length 2271 AA
Subcellular LocationSurface (Secreted)
Function SraP, a cell wall-anchored glycoprotein, mediates the direct binding of S. aureus to platelets through a platelet-binding domain located within its N-terminal region. Its expression appears to be a virulence determinant in endovascular infection.
Glycosylation Status
Glycosylation Type O- (Ser/Thr) linked
Technique(s) used for Glycosylation DetectionCarbohydrate conntent analysis by glycan detection assay
Glycan Information
Glycan Annotation Glycosylated by GlcNAc-containing oligosaccharides in E. coli.
