Many of the proteins identified from S. uberis displayed homology to known lipoproteins such as ABC transporters and the chaperone protein PrsA. The presence of only a single insertion sequence element was confirmed by Southern blotting (data not shown). A homologue of eep (accession number AAD47948) was found within the genome of S. uberis strain 0140J (ORF SUB0254) by using the BLAST algorithm (1); the identity between the predicted amino acid sequence of S. uberis SUB0254 and that of E. faecalis Eep was 304/427 (71%) (see Fig. The supernatant fraction (capsular extract) was removed and stored at −20°C. Cell debris, unbroken cells, and beads were removed by centrifugation (12,000 × g, 5 min), and the supernatant was stored at −20°C. The amino acid homology and conservation between the S. uberis and B. subtilis Lsp proteins were 40% and 61%, respectively. Finally, the signal peptide (SP) and the mature lipoprotein (mLP) are released and replaced by a new lytic water molecule (D). 2). Bacterial growth conditions and oligonucleotide primers. Clones from individual wells were cultured to obtain single colonies and cured as previously described (48); the presence of the ISS1 insertion was confirmed by Southern blotting, described above. National Center for Biotechnology Information, Unable to load your collection due to an error, Unable to load your delegates due to an error, Biosynthesis of a lipoprotein. Analysis of samples produced from cultures incubated for 24 h (approximately 14 h after the onset of stationary phase) in the presence of globomycin revealed two proteins reactive to the MtuA antibody (Fig. Putative functions for each of the predicted lipoproteins were ascribed using the BLASTp algorithm (1) (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/BLAST/ It functions by binding to the enzyme and in doing so prevents cleavage of signal peptides from target lipoproteins (11). Western blot showing that MtuA in the lsp mutant localizes to the membrane. Dashed transitions and light gray states are present only in the model of SpaseI-cleaved signal peptides, and dotted transitions and dark gray states are present only in the model of lipoproteins. In contrast, an lsp mutant of L. monocytogenes exhibited reduced efficiency for phagosomal escape during infection of eukaryotic cells and showed an attenuation in virulence (32). This protein has the highest homology in the B. subtilis genome to Eep: amino acid identities of 44% and 39% for E. faecalis and S. uberis Eep, respectively. 1A). The bacterial suspension was incubated at 37°C for 30 min. Processing of the essential lipoprotein MtuA was affected by the antibiotic globomycin.Protein samples prepared from cultures grown to the onset of stationary phase in the presence of globomycin yielded a single MtuA protein band approximately 2 kDa larger than that detected from equivalent cultures lacking the antibiotic (Fig. Q45479), S. aureus (accession no. (B) Cell fractions prepared from bacteria grown to 24 h. Lanes 1 to 4, wild-type capsule, cell wall, membrane, and cell contents, respectively; lanes 5 to 8, lsp mutant capsule, cell wall, membrane, and cell contents, respectively. ... (LspA), is an aspartyl endopeptidase which cleaves off the signal peptide N-terminal to a conserved diacylated +1 cysteine, diacylated by the first enzyme in the cascade, Lgt . The consequences of aberrant lipoprotein processing in other bacteria appear varied. However, analysis of the signal sequences of different lipoproteins revealed common structural features that are recognized prior to lipid modification. Peptide pheromones derive from lipoprotein signal peptides and are generally heptamer or octamer peptides comprised of predominantly hydrophobic amino acids (13). Hydrolyzes -Xaa-Yaa-Zaa-|- (S,diacylglyceryl)Cys-, in which Xaa is hydrophobic (preferably Leu), and Yaa (Ala or Ser) and Zaa (Gly or Ala) have small, neutral side chains. A screen for ISS1 insertions at a specific locus was carried out by PCR using paired ISS1 and gene-specific primers as first described by Taylor et al. Consequently, it was reasonable to deduce that anchoring via lipidation of the cysteine residue within the LXXC lipobox remained unaltered. 1B) corresponded in size to that detected previously in the presence of globomycin after 14 h of incubation (Fig. In whole-cell extracts from the single eep mutant, MtuA was detected only at a size consistent with that present in the wild-type strain (Fig. Ramsey J, Rasche H, Maughmer C, Criscione A, Mijalis E, Liu M, Hu JC, Young R, Gill JJ. Observations by Tjalsma et al. Lsp was first identified in Escherichia coli (20, 33, 43, 49) and subsequently in gram-positive bacteria, where it was first identified in Staphylococcus aureus (50).
