Abstract

SUMMARY: The proteins of 14 strains of were compared by SDS-PAGE in gradient gels, by two-dimensional (2D) gel electrophoresis of extracts of S-labelled cells and by immunoblot analysis of cell proteins. The strains examined included the type strain PG21 and 13 others isolated variously from genital tract, mouth, blood, upper urinary tract and a wound. These 14 strains shared 76–99% of proteins in SDS-gradient gel analysis and 41–72% in the 2D gels. As expected, the immunoblot analysis likewise revealed the existence of an extensive common protein pattern in , in addition to a number of antigens shared only by some strains.
