Fiber protein - P11818 (SPIKE_ADE05)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for P11818: 2
Forms spikes that protrude from each vertex of the icosahedral capsid. Interacts with host coxsackievirus and adenovirus receptor CXADR located at the cell tight junctions to provide virion initial attachment to target cell. The fiber protein binds to CXADR with a higher affinity than CXADR binds to itself, thereby blocking the cell-cell adhesion function of CXADR dimers and leading to local disruption of the tight junction. Fiber protein present on neo-synthesized particles may thus disrupt the junctional integrity in order to facilitate further neighboring cells infection. Fiber proteins are shed during virus entry, when virus is still at the cell surface. Fiber shedding is dependent on viral CXADR drifting motion and subsequent binding to immobile integrins. Heparan sulfate might also play a role in virus binding. (data source: UniProt  )
Subunit structure
Homotrimer; arranged in a triple beta-spiral. Interacts with host receptor CXADR. Interacts (via N-terminal tail region) with pentons. (data source: UniProt  )
The tail region anchors the fiber to penton base capsomers, whereas the shaft, built from several repeated motifs, allows the knob to protrude from the virion. (data source: UniProt  )
Other Gene name: L5

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in red indicates combined ranges of Homology Models from SBKB   and the Protein Model Portal  
The PDB to UniProt mapping is based on the data provided by the EBI SIFTS project. See also Velankar et al., Nucleic Acids Research 33, D262-265 (2005).
