BACKGROUND Neisseria meningitidis is a human pathogen that can infect diverse sites within the human host. The major diseases caused by N. meningitidis are responsible for death and disability, especially in young infants. In general, most of the recent work on N. meningitidis focuses on potential antigens and their functions, immunogenicity, and(More)
Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B is a pathogen that can infect diverse sites within the human host. According to the N. meningitidis genomic information and experimental observations, glucose can be completely catabolized through the Entner-Doudoroff pathway and the pentose phosphate pathway. The Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas pathway is not functional, because(More)
Two distinct species of gonococcal porin proteins exist that differ with regard to surface exposure. Protein IB, expressed by strains of the WII/III serogroup, has both termini buried in the outer membrane, leaving a central region of the molecule exposed at the cell surface. We have attempted to define this region of protein IB in detail by studying the(More)
