Domain

Trimeric autotransporter adhesin, putative GIN domain (IPR029275)

Short name: HiaBD2_put_GIN_domain

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This represent the GIN (Gly-Ile-Asn) domain of the Head region of TAAs - trimeric autotransporter adhesins. Not all TAAs carry this domain; however, in those that do, the GIN in combination with the Trp-ring domain is necessary for adhesion to fibronectin in the host cell [PMID: 18948113, PMID: 20862217].
