Membrane vesicles (MVs) of Porphyromonas gingivalis are regarded as an offensive weapon of the bacterium, leading to tissue deterioration in periodontal disease. Therefore, isolation of highly purified MVs is indispensable to better understand the pathophysiological role of MVs in the progression of periodontitis. MVs are generally isolated by a(More)
Outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) of the periodontopathic bacterium Porphyromonas gingivalis contain a wide range of virulence factors including lipopolysaccharide (LPS), fimbriae and gingipains. We have recently reported strong immunogenicity of OMVs using an intranasal vaccine mouse model. In the present study, we performed sub-immunoproteome analysis of(More)
