Abstract

Clinical isolates of previously shown to exhibit significant sequence divergency in a major 170 kDa adhesin, designated P1, were further characterized using restriction enzyme fingerprinting of genomic DNA and two-dimensional gel electrophoresis of total proteins. Numerous differences in DNA restriction patterns and protein profiles were found, possibly reflecting various degrees of virulence and antigenic potential.
