PGA_cap

Bacterial capsule synthesis protein PGA_cap
PGA_cap
SMART accession number:SM00854
Description: This protein is a putative poly-gamma-glutamate capsule biosynthesis protein found in bacteria. Poly-gamma-glutamate is a natural polymer that may be involved in virulence and may help bacteria survive in high salt concentrations. It is a surface-associated protein.
