Abstract

Summary

The iron uptake systems of pathogenic bacteria provide potential targets for immunological intervention. We have partially purified the high molecular mass, iron-regulated outer membrane proteins (IROMPs) from and used them to prepare a panel of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Five mAbs reacted with an 85 kDa IROMP separated by SDS-PAGE, but gave only low-level binding to whole cells by immunogold electron microscopy. However, iodination of whole cells indicated that the 85 kDa IROMP is surface-exposed. The mAbs were only cross-reactive with clinical isolates representing eight of the 17 International Antigenic Typing Scheme serotypes of , suggesting significant heterogeneity with respect to this IROMP.
