In addition, LH0189 (154,379-162,484 bp) encodes a putative hemolysin/hemagglutinin-like protein that shows significant similarity to several members of the ShlA/HecA/ FhaA family of large outer membrane adhesins, including HecA from Erwinia chrysanthemi (49% similarity over 1,389/2,801 amino acids) (34).
HecA, a member of a class of adhesins produced by diverse pathogenic bacteria, contributes to the attachment, aggregation, epidermal cell killing, and virulence phenotypes of Erwinia chrysanthemi EC16 on Nicotiana clevelandii seedlings.

Erwinaze is derived from the bacterium Erwinia chrysanthemi and is therefore immunologically distinct from E.
