Surface protein targeting in staphylococci

Surface proteins of Staphylococcus aureus play an important role during staphylococcal infection. Surface proteins are targeted and covalently anchored to the baterial cell wall via N-terminal secretion signal and C-terminal sorting signal. Currently we are trying to understand the process of surface proteins incorporation and distribution to staphylococcal cell envelop by genetic and microscopic studies.
