the fibrinogen-binding protein (fgbp) of streptococcus equi subsp. equi additionally binds igg and contributes to virulence in a mouse model.the major cell-wall-associated protein of the equine pathogen streptococcus equi subsp. equi is an m-like fibrinogen-binding protein (fgbp) which binds equine fibrinogen (fg) avidly, through residues located at the extreme n-terminus of the molecule. in this study, it is shown that fgbp additionally binds equine igg-fc. when tested against polyclonal igg from ten other animal species, it was found that fgbp binds human, rabbit, pig and cat igg, but does not bind mouse, rat, goat, sheep, cow or c ...200111739763
