Disease relevance of kpsC

  • The localization of KpsC, S and T, and KfiA, C and D proteins involved in the biosynthesis of the Escherichia coli K5 capsular polysaccharide: evidence for a membrane-bound complex [1].

High impact information on kpsC

  • The gene products of Bl21(DE3) kpsC and kpsS supported in vitro de novo synthesis of K1 polysaccharide when co-expressed with K1 NeuE and NeuS [2].
  • Complementation of mutations in the kpsE, kpsD, and kpsC genes in region 1 of the K5 capsule gene cluster by subclones of the K10 and K54 capsule gene clusters indicated that certain stages in the export of group II and I/II capsules may be conserved [3].
  • The KpsC, KpsS, and KpsT proteins involved in polysaccharide transport were associated with the inner membrane and this membrane association occurred in the absence of any other capsule-related proteins [1].
  • Osmotic shock caused the release of KfiA, KfiC, KpsC and KpsS from the inner membrane into the periplasm, suggesting that the polysaccharide biosynthetic complex may be associated with sites of adhesion between the inner and outer membrane [1].
