Internalins in EGD-e, EGD, and 10403S. (a) Schematic domain organization of the four family of EGD-e internalins. (b) inlH represents a fusion of the 5’ end of inlC2, encoding the internalin domain, with the 3’ end of inlD, encoding the B-repeats and the sorting signal. (c) Amino acid difference between InlH and InlC2.

Gallery of internalin structures. Despite the fact that InlK displays the common LRR region, it is the only one to harbor the two C-terminal Ig-like domains that could potentially act similar to pedestals that help project the N-terminal domains away from the surface of the bacterial cell. PDB access codes for the different structures depicted are 4FMZ (InlF), 1H6U (InlH), 4L3A (InlK), 3BZ5 (InlJ), 1O6V (InlA), 1M9S (InlB), and 1XEU (InlC).
