Collagen-binding surface protein Cna-like, B-type domain (IPR008454)

Short name: Collagen-bd_Cna-like_B-typ_dom

Domain relationships



This entry represents a repeated B region domain found in the collagen-binding surface protein Cna in Staphylococcus aureus, as well as other related domains. The B region domain of Cna has a prealbumin-like beta-sandwich fold of seven strands in two sheets with a Greek key topology [PMID: 10673425]. However, this domain does not mediate collagen binding, the IPR008456 region carries out that function; instead it appears to form a stalk that presents the ligand binding domain away from the bacterial cell surface. Cna is a collagen-binding MSCRAMM (Microbial Surface Component Recognizing Adhesive Matrix Molecules), and is necessary and sufficient for S. aureus cells to adhere to cartilage.
