Abstract

Protein antigen b (Pab) of has previously attracted interest because of its immunological and diagnostic relevance. In this study we present evidence that Pab possesses a signal sequence and is secreted from the cytoplasm of . The synthesis of Pab is enhanced under phosphate starvation indicating that the protein is involved in phosphate metabolism in .
