Family

Plasmid pMoPn, pGP3, virulence protein (IPR008444)

Short name: Plasmid_pMoPn_pGP3

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of Chlamydia virulence proteins which are thought to be required for the growth of these bacteria in mammalian cells [PMID: 2845228]. Humans mount a humoral and mucosal immune response to plasmid protein pGP3 from Chlamydia trachomatis infections [PMID: 7960130, PMID: 12559784]. This immune response to pGP3 in humans and animal models of chlamydia-induced disease has potential uses in diagnostic assays and protective immunisation strategies [PMID: 12780690].
