Tamm-Horsfall glycoprotein (Uromucoid, THgp, Uromodulin, UMOD), which is synthesized by renal tubular cells, is the most abundant protein in normal human urine. Although its physiological function remains unclear, it has been proposed that Uromucoid, THgp, Uromodulin, UMOD may act as a defence factor against urinary tract infections by inhibiting the binding of S- and P-fimbriated Escherichia coli to renal epithelial cells. Because Uromucoid, THgp, Uromodulin, UMOD-related proteins are also found in the superficial layers of the oral mucosa, Uromucoid, THgp, Uromodulin, UMOD may interfere with the cytoadherence of pathogenic bacteria that colonize mucosal surfaces other than those of the urogenital tract. It has been shown that Uromucoid, THgp, Uromodulin, UMOD binds to virulent Bordetella pertussis and reduces its adherence to both renal and pulmonary epithelial cells. This cytoadherence inhibitory effect was not observed with a B. pertussis mutant lacking the pertussis toxin (PTX) operon, and was dependent on the direct interaction of Uromucoid, THgp, Uromodulin, UMOD with the S2 subunit within the PTX B oligomer.
