Abstract

Previous studies indicated that OMVs of reacted specifically with WGA. A technique was therefore developed for the separation of gonococcal pili and OMVs by WGA affinity chromatography. This method was more convenient and more effective than isopycnic centrifugation for obtaining OMVs free of pili. The antigens were further purified but though homogeneous as judged by analytical methods, they both elicited an antibody response in animals to minor impurities previously undetected.
