The Serpulina hyodysenteriae variable surface protein Family [Function: Unknown] Seed alignment | Full alignment | Pfam page
This family consists of various surface-exposed proteins identified in Serpulina hyodysenteriae, a spirochete which is the etiologic agent of swine dysentery. The genes are located in two sets of tandemly linked alleles. The encoded proteins are surface-exposed and prediction methods corroborate to the existence of a ß-barrel structure.
