Staphylocoagulase repeat (IPR001443)

Short name: Staphylcoagulase_rpt


Staphylocoagulase is an extracellular protein produced by several strains of Staphylococcus aureus and which specifically forms a complex with prothrombin [PMID: 3481366, PMID: 2587230]. This complex named staphylothrombin can clot fibrinogen without any proteolytic cleavage of prothrombin. The C terminus of staphylocoagulase contains the tandem repeat which does not seem to be required for the procoagulant activity.
