Abstract

Specific monoclonal antibody and Western blot analysis were used to examine the phenotypic expression of the major 47 kDa surface immunogen of among organisms cultivated . Tissue-cultured treponemes synthesized the 47 kDa immunogen as well as, or better than, organisms cultivated in vivo (rabbit testicles).
