PA0833 of Pseudomonas aeruginosa is recently identified as an OmpA C-like protein that is able to interact with bacterial peptidoglycan (PGN). In this study, we reported the biochemical and structural characterization of the PGN-binding periplasmic-domain of PA0833 (PA0833-PD). Via mutagenesis, key residues responsible for engaging PGN were identified, which also enables us to localize the PGN-binding pocket in a 2.0 Šcrystal structure solved in this study. In contrast to its homologous proteins (as represented by AbOmpA-PD of Acinetobacter baumannii) that interact with PGN by directly engaging the DAP (diaminopimelate) moiety, PA0833-PD exhibits an enlarged PGN-binding pocket due to residue insertions and the formation of an extra α-helix in one lateral side of the pocket. Accordingly, single DAP molecule does not show detectable interactions with PA0833-PD in solution, highlighting that other PGN-components, in addition to DAP, are also required to restore the full binding capacity observed between PA0833 and PGN.
