These fungal proteins are typically between 171 and 275 amino acids in length. Although the HsbA amino acid sequence suggests that HsbA may be hydrophilic, it adsorbs to hydrophobic PBSA (polybutylene succinate-co-adipate) surfaces in the presence of NaCl or CaCl2+ and thereby promotes PBSA degradation via the CutL1 polyesterase .
AFMP1 (Asp f 17) from Aspergillus fumigatus, a cell wall galactomannoprotein, belongs to this family. The allergological significance of this protein is unknown. Patients with aspergillosis develop antibodies against this protein .
Family-defining Pfam domains (at least one of these domains is present in each family member):
|Pfam domain||Pfam clan|
|PF12296||Hydrophobic surface binding protein A||-|
