Summary
PgaA is homolgous to Y. pestis hemin storage protein HmsH, but is unable to complement hmsH mutations. [More information is available at EcoGene: EG13865]. The pgaABCD locus is required for the synthesis of a cell-bound hexosamine-rich polysaccharide, which was identified as a linear polymer of beta-1,6-N-acetylglucosamine residues (PGA), an adhesin essential in biofilm formation . [More information is available at EcoCyc: G6531].
