Outer inflammatory protein A (OipA) is an outer membrane protein of Helicobacter pylori
that is involved in inducing IL-8 and intracellular signaling. In this study, we have predicted exposure amino acid sequences of OipA for insertion in permissive sites of CstH subunit of Eschierchia coli
CS3 pilli for bacterial surface display.

In silico prediction of exposure amino acid sequences of OipA led to detection of six sequences of amino acid, 76-87, 106-112, 170-182, 222-230, 242-258, and 278-290. These sequences inserted between amino acid sequences 66-67, 100-101, and 109-110 of CstH that were predicted by Eskandari et al. as permissive sites of CstH.
OipA has the ability to induce IL-8 from gastric epithelial cells and some papers are mentioned that this outer membrane protein involve to attachment and intracellular signaling. Receptor of OipA and adhesion motifs on this protein is unknown. Detection of exposure motifs aids to recognition of adhesion motifs and receptor of OipA on gastric epithelial cells. In this study, we have predicted exposure amino acid sequences for insert to subunit CstH of CS3 pilli E. coli
for surface display.
