Exoenzyme S of Pseudomonas aeruginosa ADP-ribosylates the intermediate filament protein vimentin. Infect Immun 1989 Mar;57(3):996-8 PMID: 2492977 PMCID: PMC313212

Pubmed ID



Exoenzyme S, which had been thought to be unselective, catalyzes the ADP-ribosylation of only a subset of cellular proteins. The intermediate filament protein vimentin is one of the more abundant substrates. Disassembled vimentin, and proteolytic fragments of vimentin that cannot form filaments, is more readily ADP-ribosylated than is filamentous vimentin.
