Fimbrial protein SefA (IPR010498)

Short name: SefA

Family relationships

None.

Description

sefABC genes make up part of a complex sef operon responsible for the expression and assembly of SEF14 fimbriae. sefA encodes a fimbrin, the structural subunit of SEF14 fimbriae [PMID: 8097515]. Possession of SEF14 fimbriae alone do not appear to play a significant role in the pathogenesis of Salmonella enteritidis [PMID: 8737493].

This family also includes adhesin CS22 and CS15 (antigen 8786) which share homology with fimbria SEF14 of Salmonella enteritidis [PMID: 10816474].
