Abstract

Tannerella forsythia is a Gram-negative oral pathogen known to possess an O-glycosylation system responsible for targeting multiple proteins associated with virulence at the three-residue motif (D)(S/T)(A/I/L/V/M/T). Multiple proteins have been identified to be decorated with a decasaccharide glycan composed of a poorly defined core plus a partially characterized species-specific section. To date, glycosylation studies have focused mainly on the two S-layer glycoproteins, TfsA and TfsB, so the true extent of glycosylation within this species has not been fully explored. In the present study, we characterize the glycoproteome of T. forsythia by employing FAIMS-based glycopeptide enrichment of..
