Domain relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents the aggregative adherence fimbria I (AAF/I), which is a plasmid-encoded fimbrial adhesin. AAF/I is involved in the adherence of enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) to HEp-2 cells [PMID: 7914189]. However, not all EAEC produce AAF/I, and other fimbrial adhesins have also been found, such as AAF/II [PMID: 9317019].
