Branhamella catarrhalis: antigenic determinants and the development of the IgG subclass response in childhood.


A recently developed whole cell ELISA was used to investigate the development of IgG subclass antibodies to Branhamella catarrhalis in childhood. In addition, SDS-PAGE and immunoblotting were used to study the interaction between the outer membrane proteins (OMPs) of B. catarrhalis and IgG subclass antibodies. Specific IgG3 antibodies were undetectable or… (More)
