Schematic of inhibitor synthesis.

(A) Carboxy-functionalized polystyrene micro-beads of 1 μm diameter are activated using EDC/NHS, and covalently coupled to GST (control beads) or GST-MAM7 (inhibitor beads) using Sulfo-SMPB. This results in directional coupling of recombinant proteins to the bead surface via the cysteine-containing GST domain. (B) Schematic of GST-MAM7 bead mimicry of bacterial MAM7 presentation.
