Description

LP171728-1   Staphylococcus protein A spa gene
Protein A is a 56 kDa MSCRAMM surface protein originally found in the cell wall of the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus.

As a pathogen Staphylococcus aureus utilizes Protein A, along with a host of other proteins and surface factors to aid its survival and, thus, virulence. Protein A helps inhibit phagocytic engulfment and acts as an immunological disguise. Mutants of S. aureus lacking protein A are more efficiently phagocytosed in vitro, and mutants in infection models have diminished virulence. Higher levels of Protein A in different strains of S. aureus have been associated with nasal carriage of this bacteria.
