Target background

  • Function (From Uniprot)

Participates in the regulation of the length and mediation of the adhesion of type 1 fimbriae (but not necessary for the production of fimbriae). Adhesin is responsible for binding to D-mannose. It is placed laterally at intervals in the structure of type 1 fimbriae. FimF and FimG are required to integrate FimH into the fimbriae.

  2. Evolutionary adjustment of conformational sets in FimH during host-pathogen interactions. PMID: 28246638
  3. A mutant lacking the type 1 pilus-associated adhesin FimH showed somewhat reduced persistence within the gut. PMID: 29311232
  4. The authors demonstrated that FimH residues E50 and T53 are crucial for adhesion under flow conditions. PMID: 27816993
  5. In the absence of pulling force, the pilin domain of FimH allosterically accelerates the spontaneous dissociation of the ligand from the lectin domain of FimH by 100,000 times. PMID: 26948702
  6. Mouse urothelium responds to type 1 fimbriated UPEC adhesion by activating the dual ligand/receptor system, one between FimH adhesin and uroplakin Ia and the other between lipopolysaccharide and Tlr4. PMID: 26549759
  7. Luteolin decreased UPEC binding and invasion into bladder epithelial cells by negatively regulating the expression of the adhesin gene fimH PMID: 25051393
  8. The data indicate that thiazolylaminomannosides prevented bacterial attachment to the gut by blocking the bacterial adhesin FimH. PMID: 23795713
