Additional file 2: Figure S2. of Flagellin and GroEL mediates in vitro binding of an atypical enteropathogenic Escherichia coli to cellular fibronectin

Sequence alignment of the hypervariable region of aEPEC BA2103 flagellin and the fibronectin-binding region of Staphylococcus aureus FnBPA. A. Predicted amino acid sequence of aEPEC BA2103 flagellin (FliCBA2103), highlighting the hypervariable region (yellow). B. Amino acid sequence of S. aureus FnBPA, highlighting the Fn-binding region (grey). C. BLASTp results showing a 14-aa sequence of FliCBA2103 (residues 198 to 211 - query) with 64 % of similarity to two motifs of FnBPA (residues 764 to 777 and 802 to 815 - subject). D. Multiple sequence alignment of these three regions highlighting the conserved (dark grey) and similar (grey) amino acid residues. (DOCX 167 kb)
