Abstract

Summary: Western blot analysis was used to identify antigenic components of .Polypeptides bound to nitrocellulose membranes were probed with murine antisera raised to two strains of . and antibody-antigen complexes were detected with I-labelled antimouse immunoglobulin followed by autoradiography. Although there was inter-strain variation in immunogenic polypeptide profiles, all 23 strains of examined contained a common antigen of molecular mass 41 kDa. This antigen was not found in any of six other bacterial genera.
