Invasins

Invasins

proteins produced by bacterial cells that promote bacterial penetration into mammalian cells. The invasin produced by yersinia pseudotuberculosis seems to bind to the fibronectin receptor (_5 _1 integrin) at a site close to the fibronectin binding Site, though the invasin does not have an RGD sequence.
