Identification of SpyA, a novel ADP-ribosyltransferase of Streptococcus pyogenes



Identification of SpyA, a novel ADP-ribosyltransferase of Streptococcus pyogenes



Molecular Microbiology 54(1): 89-98



Streptococcus pyogenes, the aetiological agent of both respiratory and skin infections, produces numerous exotoxins to establish infection. This report identifies a new exotoxin produced by this organism, termed SpyA, for S. py ogenes DP-ribosylating toxin. SpyA, MW 24.9, has amino acid identity with the ADP-riboslytransferases (ADPRTs) Staphylococcus aureus EDIN and Clostridium botulinum C3.
