Overlapping entries


Dr-adhesin bind the Dr blood group antigen component of decay-accelerating factor. These proteins contain both fimbriated and afimbriated adherence structures and mediate adherence of uropathogenic Escherichia coli to the urinary tract [PMID: 9169726]. They also confer the mannose-resistant hemagglutination phenotype, which can be inhibited by chloramphenicol. The N-terminal portion of the mature protein is thought to be responsible for chloramphenicol sensitivity [PMID: 1670929].
