An N-terminus with small acidic motif (DSpSpEE) that is also found in SIBLING proteins [65]. When solubilized, statherin has a random coil conformation. When bound to HA, it takes on a more alpha-helical structure exposing a bacterial binding site [63], leading to bacterial entrapment. Another example is the role of the IDP, DMP1, in preventing kidney and cardiovascular calcification. The double k
