Family

Fibronectin-attachment (IPR010801)

Short name: FAP

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family contains bacterial fibronectin-attachment proteins (FAP). Family members are rich in alanine and proline, are approximately 300 long, and seem to be restricted to mycobacteria. These proteins contain a fibronectin-binding motif that allows mycobacteria to bind to fibronectin in the extracellular matrix [PMID: 9988684].
