We describe a sensitive and reliable method for detection and differentiation of the five relevant European Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato species (B. burgdorferi sensu stricto, B. afzelii, B.(More)
We developed and evaluated a recombinant Borrelia line immunoblot assay based on 18 homologues of seven different antigens, i.e., p100, p58, p41i, BmpA, VlsE, OspC, and DbpA. Each recombinant antigen(More)
The Borrelia (B.) burgdorferi adhesin DbpA (decorin-binding protein A) is a valuable antigen for serodiagnosis of Lyme borreliosis and a promising candidate for a vaccine. To investigate the(More)
Alteration of the outer surface protein (Osp) composition--especially that of OspA and OspC--seems to be important for the adaptation of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato to its endothermic hosts(More)
