Abstract

Adherence of to the host tissue is an important step in the initiation of pathogenesis. At least 10 adhesins produced by have been described and it is becoming clear that the expression of these adhesins and their interactions with eukaryotic cells involve complex processes. Some of these, such as the fibronectin-binding proteins (FnBPs) and Clumping Factor A, are well characterized. However, in the last 10 years a number of novel adhesins have been described. Functional analyses of these proteins, one of which is Eap (xtracellular dherence rotein, also known as Map and p70), are revealing important information on the pathogenesis of staphylococcal disease. More than 10 years after the first report of Eap, we are beginning to understand that this protein, which has a broad spectrum of functions, may be a critical factor in the pathogenesis of . This review will focus on the interactions of Eap with eukaryotic cells, plasma proteins and the extracellular matrix as well as on the recently recognized role of Eap as an important mediator in the immune response to staphylococcal infection.
