Short name: Capsule_synth_CapA

Domain relationships

None.

Description

CapA is a putative poly-gamma-glutamate capsule biosynthesis protein found in bacteria. Poly-gamma-glutamate is a natural polymer that may be involved in virulence and may help bacteria survive in high salt concentrations. It is a surface-associated protein [PMID: 16689787].
